Jersey to be Represented at COP27

Nov 09, 2022

The Minister for Energy and Climate Change, Deputy Hilary Jeune, will join counterparts from around the world at next week’s 27th Conference of Parties of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27).

Deputy Jeune will spend four days at the international event in Sharm El-Sheikh as part of the UK delegation.

Each day at COP27 has a theme to focus the discussions, as follows: 

• Wednesday 9 November – Finance Day

• Thursday 10 November – Science Day, and Youth and Future Generation Day

• Friday 11 November – Decarbonisation Day

• Saturday 12 November – Adaptation and Agriculture Day

Deputy Jeune said: “Our work to protect the environment and drive forward carbon emission reductions is a key priority of this government, and we’re committed to a detailed Carbon Neutral Roadmap of actions to put us on a pathway to net zero by 2050. 

“The invite to attend COP27 shows there is a great deal of respect shown for our efforts in this area and provides us the opportunity to share our work and collaborate with other international jurisdictions. I hope to raise awareness of the Government of Jersey’s offering on climate change policy, green finance, and sustainability at an international level. 

“I’m also particularly keen to learn from the work of other small Island nations and enhance our understanding of the domestic objectives of like-minded small jurisdictions to reduce emissions, finance a just transition, enhance energy security and combat climate change.”
