Green Loan

Finance your green ambitions and help us plant trees for a brighter future!

At Capital Credit Union, we share your passion for the sustainability of our planet. We are proud to have developed a personal loan tailored to support your efforts towards Net-Zero and our commitment to make a tangible difference.

Planting hope for the future

As a community-centred cooperative, we like to think that we not only talk the talk but also walk the walk. That's why we have set up the CCU grove, an initiative aimed at participating in the rewilding of our beloved highlands.

The concept is simple: for every single green loan taken, we will donate a tree. 

We are in it together.
