Speaker: Charles Alluto, Chief Executive, National Trust Jersey

Does investment in our environment give a good return?
A vibrant economy and conservation are often viewed as mutually exclusive and at different ends of the spectrum, resulting in polarised opinions which deliver confrontation, heated debate and more often than not a depleted environment. The National Trust for Jersey would like to suggest that this is an outdated perspective and that the conservation of our built and natural heritage is a pre-requisite to a successful and diversified economy, in which the quality of life is judged both in terms of GDP and sense of wellbeing.
With our corporate partners, like Ashburton, actively investing in our environment on many different levels, we believe we have a real opportunity to  pull things back from the brink and deliver the returns necessary to ensure Jersey remains a great place to live, work and play.
Charles Alluto has been Chief Executive Officer of The National Trust for Jersey for just under 20 years. During this time Charles has sought to raise the profile and influence of the organisation through a variety of campaigns including the Coastline Campaign, ‘A Line in the Sand’, the Green House Project, Love Plemont and other key projects such as 16 New Street and the Foot Buildings.
