Sustainable Financing

‘HSBC stands ready to play its full part, and to work with all of our peers and partners to build the climate-friendly future to which we all aspire.‘ Stuart Gulliver – September 2015

In 2013, the World Economic Forum Green Investment report estimated that the "additional investment needed to meet the climate challenge–for clean energy infrastructure, sustainable transport, energy efficiency and Forestry – is about USD0.7 trillion per year."

Whilst various views and estimates are published, whichever report is cited, a consistent theme is that the required investments are extremely large. What's also clear is that the scale of finance required cannot be delivered by the public sector alone; the private sector will have an extremely key role to play if these goals are to be reached.

With the successful conclusion of COP21, climate change and the potential of green finance is moving to the top of the political agenda. What's vital now is that the momentum is maintained and the agreements reached are implemented. As our Group Chief Executive Stuart Gulliver said in Paris, 'We stand ready to support our clients - across countries and sectors - in tackling the threat of climate change.'
