Guernsey Green Finance Launch

Guernsey Green Finance – at the forefront of development of green and sustainable finance – on-island launch
2018 saw Guernsey begin to develop serious credential in green and sustainable finance. Following a strategy of development and engagement published in May, we have subsequently launched a world-leading product with the Guernsey Green Fund and joined the United Nation’s Finance Centres for Sustainability Network.
Earlier this year Z/Yen, the publisher of the global financial centres index, singled Guernsey out as an emerging global player in green finance and in recent weeks development has gathered pace as TISE, the Guernsey headquartered exchange, launched a bespoke green segment and the GFSC published a paper on suggestions for the development of green insurance.
Formed to support strategic action in line with commitments to the UN principles, Guernsey Green Finance has been created with the support of leading politicians and appropriately takes Guernsey’s sustainable finance strategy to the next level.
Chair of this new body, Dr Andy Sloan, Guernsey Finance Deputy Chief Executive, Strategy, will present the rationale and objectives of Guernsey Green Finance, followed by a panel discussion on what sustainable finance is.
