This event forms part of a week-long series of events focussed on sustainable finance in Jersey to mark the first year of our strategy, Jersey For Good – A Sustainable Future.

At our second Sustainable Finance Community of Interest (CofI) meeting of 2022, David Postlethwaite, our sustainable finance lead, will focus on specific activities being undertaken to enhance Jersey’s enabling environment for sustainable finance. We will be joined by Florencia Baldi, who leads the UNDP-convened FC4S and SIF Knowledge Hub, a global insights platform to advance sustainable finance at financial centers and insurance regulators level, respectively. Florencia will be giving an overview of the recent FC4S Global State of Play report for sustainable finance, which charts the progress of financial centres including Jersey in deploying capital to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Additionally, there will be an opportunity for discussion and sharing of ideas to support policy development, as well as a deeper dive into current trends in sustainable finance affecting Jersey.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the events team.
