Guernsey Sustainable Finance Week

Financing sustainability in the post-C19 era and the role of private capital, Tuesday 09 - Thursday 11 June 2020.


Coming into 2020, climate finance and financing sustainability had moved definitively front and centre of the global policy agenda. Despite the impact of the Covid-19 crisis, changing the world order, climate change remains a threat that has not gone away. The impacts and influences of the Covid-19 pandemic will be deep seated and structural.

While we are still living through the formative experience of Covid-19, Guernsey’s Sustainable Finance Week (Tuesday 09 – Thursday 11 June), delivered in an online format, will look to explore these influences and impacts in series of dialogues around the central issue of the role that private capital will play in financing sustainability post Covid-19.

We will explore, amongst many other issues, what implications the responses to the pandemic situation may hold for climate action, and what steps could be taken with private capital to align the immediate response to the sustainability imperative.

Leading figures from the worlds of sustainable finance and private wealth will convene to discuss this topic during a series of webinars.

  • Day one, 9 June, focuses on the role of private capital in financing a sustainable recovery.
  • Day two, 10 June, will look at the specific role of family offices.
  • Day three, 11 June, will consider the impact and role of the private equity sector.

These will be supplemented with daily podcasts, providing international insights from sustainable finance leaders based in Switzerland, Hong Kong and New York.
