Come along to hear how companies here can get involved in ‘green’ elements such as carbon offset through the Environmental and Social Impact Monitor Launch.
This new service aims to improve Guernsey’s green potential. The Environmental & Social Impact Monitor (ESIM), is led by experienced entrepreneur Marc Lainé. It will develop Guernsey as a leading centre for green and sustainable business and finance. ESIM will accredit organisations that align the interests of investors, customers and the wider community so that all stakeholders can make informed decisions and organisations can clearly demonstrate alignment of their values with social expectations.
ESIM will support Guernsey businesses in their efforts to contribute to this goal with a range of benchmarking and rating services which will:
- Enhance Guernsey’s reputation for Green Finance
- Facilitate the development of a new advisory and auditing industry that will be able to export skills to other jurisdictions
- Provide a clear opportunity for Guernsey to demonstrate its commitment and alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
ESIM also intends to raise £1m in annual charitable funding for Guernsey with an innovative donation platform.
