Affinity Private Wealth Group Director Russell Waite was the first recipient of the ‘Outstanding Individual Contribution’ at Jersey’s inaugural Sustainable Finance Awards.

Attended by more than 100 people, the awards were designed to recognise firms and individuals which are helping to drive market transformation and the deployment of financial flows in line with Environmental, Social and Governance factors. 

Winners were picked for their strong sustainable finance credentials, as well as their commitment to embedding ESG values into their business activities and inspiring the finance sector as a whole to deliver positive impacts for both people and planet.

The independent judging panel appointed by Jersey Finance comprised Andrew W. Mitchell, Founder and CEO at Equilibrium Futures and founding partner of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures; Amy Blackwell, Partner at Acorn Capital Advisors; and Simon Boas, Executive Director at Jersey Overseas Aid.

Jersey Finance Chief Executive Joe Moynihan said: “We believe Jersey has a real responsibility to use its expertise and capital to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable global economy. 

“These awards serve to highlight the expertise and experience we have in Jersey to spearhead positive change and provide an opportunity to champion those organisations and individuals that are driving innovation in this critically important space.

“I am delighted so many firms entered our inaugural Sustainable Finance Awards and would like to thank all the firms who put themselves forward, I would particularly like to extend my congratulations to this year’s winners, who really are making an inspiring effort to support our journey for a better future.”
