Founded in Jersey in 1987, JTC is listed on the London Stock Exchange and a member of the FTSE250, with over 1,700 employee-owners in 34 offices across 21 jurisdictions.
Shared ownership has always been at the heart of our culture and naturally drives a long-term, sustainable outlook as every single employee is an owner of the business.
We have made considerable progress towards our sustainability goals and objectives, with an emphasis on strengthening our governance framework through changes to the Committee structure of our Board and several key appointments, including naming Wendy Holley as JTC’s first Chief Sustainability Officer and David Vieira as Group Head of Sustainability Services.
In addition, the structure of our internal reporting was re-assessed to prioritise ESG and sustainability considerations with the Sustainability Forum now reporting progress on JTC’s ESG roadmap directly to the Risk & Governance Committee.
JTC recently reported for the second time under TCFD, and for the third time under the SASB framework, remaining a Carbon Neutral+ organisation and reducing CO2 emissions per employee by -9.7% YoY, as well also reporting for the first time to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
As a highly regulated and listed company, good governance is the foundation of our operations and service offering so we are proud to ‘walk the talk’.
We know that we will thrive as a business by working in a sustainable way, within constantly evolving legal and regulatory frameworks, respecting the natural environment, and creating a positive impact for the communities where we live and work.
Being a Jersey-headquartered company with global reach, we felt it was important to not only support Jersey Finance’s mission to increase sustainable finance initiatives, but also to lead the way when it comes to showing how much Jersey can punch above its weight on an international scale.
Given the broad range of solutions that JTC provides to institutional and private clients, we would have been comfortable entering multiple categories, with our Jersey Corporate Services team also winning an ESG award recently.
However, we felt that our funds offering represented the best holistic overview of the benefits that we can provide in furthering the move towards sustainable outcomes/impact.
Our ESG and Sustainability Services are available to all clients, regardless of size, and are adapted to each case to provide bespoke solutions.
Jersey Finance Sustainable Finance Awards
The Sustainable Finance Awards showcased some of the fantastic initiatives in Jersey and being held at Jersey Zoo, provided a clear and tangible connection to an enterprise that has made a difference around the world for decades.
JTC was proud to attend the awards and help to publicise the good work already accomplished in Jersey while knowing there is still more to be done.
We are continually developing our solutions, firmly believing that the value we offer clients is enhanced by the standards to which we ourselves are held, and as a company our ESG strategy and disclosures progress and evolve on a yearly basis.
We look forward to being an integral part of Jersey Finance’s vision to make the Island a leading sustainable international finance centre and celebrating new achievements at the 2024 Sustainable Finance Awards.
