Sustainable Financing

HSBC is committed to leading the way to a sustainable future. We recognise the critical role that finance has to play in creating sustainable growth. As one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations HSBC aspires to be a leading global partner in financing, managing and shaping the transition to a low carbon future.

According to HSBC Navigator report Now, next and how for business, sustainability is a key trend for China. Firms are increasingly focused on becoming sustainable, both to satisfy demand from customers and to further strengthen the country's position as supply chain to the world. More businesses in China view sustainability as essential to their long-term viability than the global average (30% versus 21%). 78% of firms in China think they have a role to play in delivering the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), considerably higher than global counterparts (63%)
