Legislate against environmentally damaging investment
The question needs to be asked how much Jersey's finance industry supports investment into large-scale environmentally damaging projects globally, such as mining, fossil fuel extraction and projects that involve widespread deforestation which will have a far wider environmental impact than Jersey's native carbon footprint. Ensure companies based in Jerseys finance sector are legislated to ensure green or environmentally neutral investments only. If this is not legislated for, it is very unlikely to happen voluntarily.
Why the contribution is important
It is possibly the greatest influence on environmental issues globally that Jersey could have. Ensuring investment is targeted to the green economy would have far-reaching impact.
