Business Plan for the Planet

Our Net Zero Ambition

We are setting out an ambitious plan to prioritize financing and investment that supports the transition to a net zero global economy – and helps to build a thriving, resilient future for society and businesses. At the heart of the plan is a pledge to reduce financed emissions from our portfolio of customers to net zero by 2050 or sooner, in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement

How to get started on sustainability

Whether it’s complying with tighter regulation, meeting growing customer expectations or keeping pace with your competitors, businesses cannot afford to ignore sustainability. But how do you get started?

Boosting clean technology

We’re here to be the partner of VCs and technology companies transitioning to low carbon activities. That’s why we created a $100-million HSBC Venture Growth Finance to help our partners and clients develop CleanTech solutions that can lead to a low carbon future for us all.

Be part of the Business Plan for the Planet

Businesses need a partner with the understanding, the capabilities and the resources to help them make the transition to a sustainable model. At HSBC, we are committed to:

  • Achieving net zero in our own operations and supply chain by 2030 or sooner
  • Supporting our portfolio of customers to thrive through transition
  • Dedicating between $750bn and $1trn of finance and investment by 2030 to help our customers transition
  • Unlocking next-generation climate solutions.
