Guernsey Green Finance is the body through which Guernsey delivers on its strategic commitment to sustainable finance. In 2018, Guernsey introduced the world-leading Guernsey Green Fund, the world's first regulated green fund product offering investors certainty on the green credentials of their investment.
Investment Week's Sustainable & ESG Investment Awards showcase expertise and commitment to investment factors that take into account environmental, social and ethical criteria as well as good corporate behaviour – factors that are increasingly in demand by investors and a growing sector of the investment industry.
The awards are aimed at fund managers and organisations who are at the forefront of facilitating or investing in themes that take into account the environment, ethics, as well as social and corporate responsibility, and whose work promotes a greater understanding into the sector's potential.
The shortlist of finalists for the 2019 awards was announced today.
Dr Andy Sloan, Chair of Guernsey Green Finance, said: "Sustainability needs to be at the core of everything we do as a global finance sector. Guernsey Green Finance is proud to support Investment Week's recognition of leaders and innovators of the movement transitioning us towards truly sustainable global finance."
The awards ceremony takes place at London's Waldorf Hilton Hotel on Friday 22 November.
