Guernsey IoD event to focus on climate change

Posted: 13/02/2020

The next Institute of Directors (IoD) breakfast seminar in Guernsey this month will discuss how the island's energy sector is transforming and playing its role in managing the global climate change crisis.  

The States of Guernsey is to release and debate its new energy policy letter this spring. Ahead of that, Alan Bates, Chief Executive of Guernsey Electricity, will discuss how the energy sector is transforming, and the steps the utility company is taking to contribute to the island’s carbon reduction targets. 

John Clacy, Chair of the IoD in Guernsey, said: “Climate change, resulting from the use of fossil fuels and their carbon emissions, presents a significant global environmental challenge. How Guernsey responds to this crisis was the focus of our 2019 Convention and the IoD hopes to keep this at the top of the business agenda in 2020.”

The talk will also consider the different ways in which people are using electricity and what Guernsey Electricity’s future role is to facilitate this.  

• The event takes place on 28 February at the Old Government House Hotel, from 7.45am. To book a place, click here
