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 are in a global crisis,sea levels rising,the planet is being destroyed with pollution,DE forestation,animals and plants facing extinction,our oceans being destroyed ,fish stocks eroded,we are in a crisis that must be addressed now.

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.

no to longue hue/spur point being desecrated with inert waste,we as an Island are an international heritage site,we must protect our green fields,coastline and the air that we breathe.

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.

transition to electric vehicles,encourage cycling and walking for better physical and mental health and improving the environments air quality.No to toxic detergents being flushed into our water sysem.

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?

look at tidal/hydro power which would remove the 6 diesel plants at the power station,giving us o carbon emissions,electric vehicles for all states transport.
