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 act fast on climate change, and adopt a clear plan to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2040.

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

If we are to be serious we have to factor in the cruise ships that visit in the summer season. Some burn heavy fuel oil and emit emissions equivalent to millions of cars.

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.

The IDP needs reviewing and this is the time to introduce policy to protect and enhance biodiversity.

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.

Green initiative should not be seen as a burden to business. Often it's the other way around, and by adopting greener policies, processes can become more efficient and waste can be eliminated having the reverse effect.

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?

Balance - all States initiatives be them environmental or otherwise must be proportionate.

Leadbeater, Mark
