LeapFrog CEO Alex Germanis
Formed in 2013 through a merger of two charities, PURE the Clean Planet Trust and Carbon Leapfrog, Pure Leapfrog provide low cost finance to UK community energy projects of all sizes through the provision of both small and large scale loans. They also provide professional expertise through their network of lawyers, accountants, and other professional service providers. In September 2015, the Charity’s wholly-owned, trading subsidiary, Leapfrog Finance Ltd was launched with a dedicated £15M community energy bridge facility from Big Society Capital.
Belinda, their Office Manager says:
“Whilst a key factor of moving to Sustainable Bridges was the affordability element, the location is great and within reaching distance of many of the organisations we work closely with. We are also excited to be working alongside other sustainability related organisations, to share ideas and learn from other leaders in their field and hope to make some lasting relationships.”
Leapfrog are the 14th company to join Sustainable Bridges, as we build a strong sustainability feel and community within our office.
