WHAT IS Sustainable Finance Guernsey?
Sustainable Finance Guernsey is the initiative through which Guernsey Finance delivers on Guernsey's strategic commitment to sustainable finance.
The Sustainable Development Goals, a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations, are mankind’s most ambitious effort to date to secure its future on earth.
The International Panel on Climate Change estimates that around USD 2.4 trillion or roughly 2.5% of global GDP annually needs to be invested in the energy system between 2016 and 2035 to meet the 1.5 degree goal. It is therefore important for financial centres such as Guernsey to adapt to the increasing demand for green investments.
As a responsible global citizen, it is Guernsey’s intention to contribute its expertise and experience as a global finance centre to the fulfilment of these goals through the work of Sustainable Finance Guernsey – our dedicated initiative to green and sustainable finance.
