Half Of Businesses Feeling Impact Of Climate Change

The results of a Guernsey Business Sustainability Survey have now been released.

It seems that our island is not immune to the effects global climate change, with 50% of local businesses reporting issues from it. 44% of businesses have now appointed a sustainability champion.

Two people within the survey still do no believe in climate change.

Rollo de Saumarez, Co-Lead of the Sustainable Business Initiative, released the following information:

“We at Sustainable Business Initiative have identified three key steps to tackling the issue:

  1. Decide to act – you can’t solve a problem you don’t admit you have
  2. Appoint a champion – nothing will get done unless someone has responsibility
  3. Apply an environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework – if it’s not measured, you can’t mitigate it.”

“Only 28% of businesses have undertaken an ESG Framework, this has got to be a priority.”
