KPMG Channel Islands Limited (‘KPMG’) is delighted to have provided Green Assurance Certification for the first London Stock Exchange listed Guernsey Green Fund, Bluefield Solar Income Fund Limited.
As part of the Route 1 Guernsey Green Fund application firms are required to obtain “a certificate from a suitable third party that the prospectus meets the notified green criteria”. KPMG successfully leveraged its proprietary global quality framework for sustainability services in performing its work.
In addition to supporting the Guernsey Green Fund, KPMG can also provide Green Assurance to support listings on The International Stock Exchange (‘TISE’) – Green Segment. Unlike the Guernsey Green Fund, which contains its own Green Criteria, assurance provided for a TISE listing can be performed under international criteria such as the Climate Bond Initiative. KPMG’s Global Sustainability Network has significant experience providing assurance under this standard.
