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 take further steps to tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions where it's practical and in Guernsey's interests to do so.

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

We need to tackle the climate crisis head on by boosting on-island renewables, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and improving our sea defences.

BIODIVERSITY LOSS

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

I believe the States need to prioritise Guernsey's biodiversity, and should invest more funding in protecting it where possible.

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

We need to conduct the requirements (collect information, etc) for the International Convention on Biodiversity to be extended to Guernsey

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.

On-island renewables will provide green economic diversification and job growth and bring in new businesses and competition in the energy market.

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?

Develop solar farms, the infrastructure for all forms of electric vehicle transportation including electric buses and support electric innovation in green air transport.
