CANDIDATES

Thank you to all the candidates who completed the survey.

 

The puffin ratings below are based on their answers to the multiple choice questions we posed to them across three key issues, with four green puffins indicating the best answer down to 1 green puffin indicating the least environmentally friendly option. We did not factor the candidates' free form text answers (visible by clicking 'Read More' to get to their candidate page) into the ratings.

Candidates who did not engage with the survey received zero green puffins.

The States questions also contain informative environmental responses for some candidates:

Which statement best aligns to your views on the climate crisis?

We should reach net zero carbon emissions as early as possible (and no later than 2040), and take this opportunity to transform Guernsey into a climate leader and innovator.

Please let us know more about your perspective on the climate crisis in your own words.

We should not view Guernsey in isolation we need to do all we can locally to meet our contribution globally . The key driver for change is accepting that there is a crisis all policies are then informed by that sense of urgency .

BIODIVERSITY LOSS

Which statement best aligns to your views on the challenges being faced by local biodiversity?

I believe urgent action is needed to save Guernsey's biodiversity, and the States should immediately invest more funding to protect it, introducing new legislation as appropriate.

Please let us know more about your views on the challenges faced by local biodiversity in your own words.

There are ever increasing pressures on land in small communities such as ours. Therefore we need to embrace the plan for nature and complement that plan with legislation that enshrines and protects our natural environment

CLIMATE EQUITY

Transitioning to a greener economy could result in major, potentially unequal, social and economic impacts. Which statement best reflects your view of how these should be managed?

We can do more than just avoid unfairness - we can and should use climate action as an opportunity to build a better, fairer society, for example, through green job creation and progressive funding solutions.

Please let us know more about your perspective on climate equity and transitioning to a greener economy in your own words.

Within the world community it is the very poorest that face the brunt of climate change . We need to do all we can to ensure that the wealthiest nations invest morally and ethically in supporting bona fide green initiatives . Fairness should be at the absolute core of all policy development, the relative challenges faced by by families in the west are just that. relative.

THE NEXT 4 YEARS

Where the environment is concerned, what outcomes do you think the States should achieve in the next four years, in your own words?

1. Deliver on the climate change mitigation plan.
2. Deliver the energy policy.
3.Actively promote the plan for nature.
4. Have climate change considerations at the very core of all policies.
