RELATED TOPICS​

The United Nations’ Financial Centres for Sustainability (UN FC4S) has launched its European arm in Dublin, Ireland, with Guernsey as one of nine financial centres involved.

“We are pleased to be one of the leading European green and sustainable finance centres involved with the launch of the European network of the UN’s FC4S, demonstrating the commitment of Guernsey Green Finance to international engagement and pursuing the goals of FC4S, and our position at the forefront of green finance,” says Andy Sloan (pictured), Deputy Chief Executive, Strategy, at Guernsey Finance, the promotional agency for the industry body in the island.
 
“We look forward to sharing our expertise in product development and learning from our partners in this initiative to help us to achieve our objectives in developing green and sustainable finance.”
 
The new European network, which has its base in Dublin, sees Guernsey join other leading financial centres including London, Frankfurt, Paris and Zurich, among others in a broader European commitment to sustainable finance.
 
Guernsey Green Finance’s strategic approach is to align with a global green taxonomy, to develop its product offer across financial services, to develop a programme of engagement to promote green and sustainable finance, and to work in partnership to foster international cooperation.
 
The European network event takes place during Dublin’s Climate Innovation Summit, part of Climate Week Ireland, the centrepiece of a programme of events to mark the country’s Year of Sustainable Business in 2018.
