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 cannot wait a minute longer to act, we are killing the planet. If we act now and shout to the rest of the world about it hopefully we can repair some damage.

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.

We are blessed with so much on this island but have to keep the balance right. At the moment the scales are tipping and we need to balance before we ruin our "Gem of the Sea"

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?

Climate action, economic and social justice are closely linked. I would strongly support equitable policies which don't put the financial burden of climate change on lower- and middle-income households.

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

We must make the transition to green economy affordable to all. We all have to do this together.

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?

All detailed plans should be finalised and projects well underway.
