About the GDFC
The Green Deal Finance Company (GDFC) is a privately-owned consumer credit company focused on setting up, financing and administering Green Deal Loans. Green Deal Loans provide customers with accessible financing to improve their homes by installing energy efficiency products.
GDFC operates on a business-to-business level with its network of Green Deal Providers who are able to offer the GDFC’s finance to their customers.
GDFC has a current loan base of over 12,500 properties and commenced financing loans again in May 2017. The Company, which has ambitious growth plans, aims to become the leading platform for consumers in the UK in the home energy efficiency space.
GDFC was originally launched in 2012 as part of an initiative introduced by the Government to reduce its carbon emissions by 35% by 2020 through addressing the UK’s thermally inefficient housing stock, the worst in Europe. In January 2017, the company was acquired by Greenstone Finance, Aurium Capital Markets and Honeycomb Investment Trust.
