Guernsey Green Finance and UK Green Finance Initiative foster collaborative approach

RELATED TOPICS​

Guernsey Green Finance and Green Finance Initiative have confirmed their mutual support and commitment to collaboration in the promotion the development of green and sustainable finance.

Representatives of the two organisations met at City Week, the international financial services conference at London’s Guildhall, this week to strengthen ties between the sustainable finance initiatives of the two jurisdictions and foster cooperation on the development of green finance.
 
Sir Roger Gifford, Chair of the UK Green Finance Initiative, says: “There is no greater imperative for bankers and investors than financing the transition to a low-carbon future. The UK has demonstrated global leadership in green and sustainable finance time and again but collaboration is key. It’s both natural and necessary, therefore, to combine with our colleagues in Guernsey and we welcome working with Guernsey Green Finance in support of climate finance.”
 
Guernsey Finance Deputy Chief Executive, Strategy, and Chair of Guernsey Green Finance, Dr Andy Sloan (pictured), says the Green Finance Initiative team, and Sir Roger in particular, had been incredibly supportive over the last two years.
 
“They were instrumental in us developing Guernsey Green Finance and committing as a jurisdiction to strategic action on sustainable finance,” adds Dr Sloan. “I am delighted that we are able to formally confirm that collaborative approach between us to ensure that Guernsey fully plays its natural complementary role supporting the City and UK global leadership on green finance.
 
“Given Guernsey’s strong and symbiotic connections with the City of London, City Week was the ideal opportunity for both organisations to get together and strengthen ties in our mutual objective – to promote the development of green and sustainable finance.”
