Sustainable Financing

HSBC Climate Research

We aim to provide the best analysis of climate change and its implications for economies, industries and sectors. There are three areas of focus - financing a 2°C world, climate policy and climate impacts.

Financing a 2°C

The main discussion in this area is around capital allocation to deliver the following

  • The transition to a low-carbon world
  • The building of resilience to the impacts of climate change

Climate Policy

The main element for discussion in this area is around emission reduction and how we achieve:

  • The decoupling of energy use from economic growth
  • The decarbonising of the energy mix

Climate Impacts

To ensure the wider climate survival it is vital that we are able to embed resilience to:

  • Shifting temperature norms and water availability
  • Weather extremes and sea level rise
