True Limited will support us with minimising and managing our carbon footprint including our direct and indirect emissions, as well as other indirect emissions such as business travel, purchased goods, water and general waste, and staff commuting.
Jersey Finance will join other local finance industry firms in the vanguard of businesses dedicated to supporting the Island’s response to the climate emergency, in line with the Government of Jersey’s carbon neutral strategy. The partnership will culminate in the Environmental Business Operations Standard Award, delivered by True with ESI Monitor.
Commenting on the announcement, Amy Bryant, Deputy CEO of Jersey Finance, said:
“Jersey Finance is working closely with the financial services industry, our government and our regulator to deliver on an ambitious strategy that will see Jersey recognised for its world-leading sustainable finance credentials.”
“As part of this journey, we believe that it is essential for Jersey Finance itself to demonstrate leadership by embedding sustainability into its operating model. That is why we are committed as an organisation to measuring and mitigating our environmental impact, as well as understanding how we can deliver sustainable outcomes through our activities.”
Michelle Ryan, Director of True Limited, added:
“Jersey Finance have shown great commitment by making public their sustainability strategy, not just for our finance industry, but for themselves as well. You can’t endeavour to achieve carbon neutrality without first knowing your carbon footprint and Jersey Finance has been proactive in engaging with us on ways to reduce their emissions. It’s a pleasure to start working with such dedicated team.”
