The awards are designed to recognise and showcase the leading people and firms in Jersey’s sustainable finance ecosystem, promote innovation, and help to develop Jersey’s credentials as a leading sustainable international finance centre.
There are three main categories of awards:
- Leadership in Sustainable Finance: with six awards spanning the funds, private wealth, corporate services, investment management, banking and professional services sectors
- Innovation in Sustainable Finance: for a firm that best exemplifies innovation
- Outstanding Individual Contribution: recognising a key Jersey-based professional who has contributed to Jersey’s vision of being a sustainable finance centre of excellence
Nominations will be open from 30 May to 1 July with a panel of judges selecting winners, which will be announced at an awards ceremony on 13 October. The judges are Andrew Mitchell, Founder and CEO at Equilibrium Futures; Amy Blackwell, Partner at Acorn Capital Advisors; and Simon Boas, Executive Director of Jersey Overseas Aid.
Joe Moynihan, Chief Executive of Jersey Finance, commented:
“Backed up by our sustainable finance strategy which was launched last year, we are making good progress in cementing Jersey’s reputation as a centre of excellence for ESG investment and remain focused on continuing to uphold our responsibility to support the transition to a sustainable global economy.
“Establishing these awards is a natural next step, giving us an opportunity to shine a light on local organisations and individuals demonstrating commitment to operating sustainably and prioritising ESG values in the workplace.”
