Community support for Sustainable Finance Week

Tuesday 23 August 2022


Guernsey Finance has announced a “packed schedule of fringe events” to bookend the island’s third Sustainable Finance Week.

The week-long programme, which takes place 19-23 September, will focus on three critical global themes: carbon markets and pricing, biodiversity and energy transition.

Outside the core schedule of Sustainable Finance Week there are 22 fringe events planned by organisations including the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, the Institute of Directors, Guernsey Association of Trustees, Guernsey International Insurance Association and the Guernsey Investment & Funds Association.

Event topics include corporate governance and climate risk, sustainable talent development and responsible investing for insurers. 

Headline sponsors PwC and RBSi will be hosting events, with PwC exploring emerging nature based frameworks and opportunities, and RBSi explaining the role for alternative investment funds in the transition to net-zero.

The Guernsey Financial Services Commission will host a Meet the Regulator session, where the Commission will discuss its regulated sustainable finance approach and the recent greenwashing and natural capital consultations.

La Société will welcome Co-Director of the Grantham Institute, Professor Martin Siegert, Professor Siegert led the Lake Ellsworth Consortium, which was a UK NERC-funded programme that designed an experiment to explore a large subglacial lake beneath the ice of West Antarctica. 

Professor Siegert has undertaken three Antarctic field seasons and will be talking about his research in Antarctica, what it tells us about climate change and what actions society should take.
