Our Climate Change Statement

In 2020, we developed our climate change statement to show our position on this global challenge.

Climate Change

New evidence predicts a 3oC increase in temperature by the end of this century. The United Nations has advised that “unprecedented” changes would be needed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, requiring serious effort at every level of society.

In recognition that every business needs to increase their environmental efforts, Guernsey Electricity have launched a Climate Change Statement, revised our 5-year Environmental Sustainability Strategy, and committed to achieving ISO14001:2015 certification of our Environmental Management System (EMS) within the next financial year. 

In 2020, we developed our climate change statement to show our position on this global challenge.


Climate change is one of the biggest challenges the world faces today 

We have big environmental aspirations for our small island community   

We believe that the energy sector must take the lead in creating a greener and sustainable world   

We understand our role and how we can help tackle climate change for our society   

We envisage a future where all our energy supplies come from renewable and sustainable sources   

We will enable an energy system that supports renewables and reduces reliance on fossil fuels   

We will embrace new technologies for everyone’s benefit and enjoyment    

This is the greatest contribution we can, and will, deliver   

Alone we can do a little   

But together as a community we can do so much   

Delivering a sustainable energy future for Guernsey.
