Sustainability for Businesses
As the world changes, we understand our customers have evolving needs to unlock opportunity for sustainable growth and a need to act with our ecosystem of resources, tools, relationships and solutions.
Sustainability for Businesses
Our sustainability strategy has, at its core, a commitment to support our customers understand and act on their transition to lower emissions and to help them achieve their wider sustainability ambitions.
Sustainable finance is not one size fits all.
The customer stories in this booklet are examples of how we work in partnership with our customers across a wide range of sectors and geographies, mobilising finance and accelerating innovation to realise the opportunity to build a more sustainable, resilient, and prosperous future.
Today we finance a number of industries that significantly contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. We have a strategy to help our customers to reduce their emissions and to reduce our own. For more information visit www.hsbc.com/sustainability
