Sustainable Financing

Financing a Sustainable Project

HSBC has been one of the leaders at the forefront of sustainable financing over the last few years and is consistently ranked as one of the top three leading global underwriters of Green, Social and Sustainability Bonds.

We also continue to play a pivotal role in the market’s overall development and our involvement as a key member of the Green Bond Principles Executive Committee remains a priority for the bank. HSBC chairs two of the five working groups (New Markets and Index & Database), and is an integral contributor to the Social Bond working group after being one of the founding writers of the Social Bond Guidance in June 2015. This guidance was adopted by the International Capital Markets Association as the Social Bond Principles in GBP Executive Committee in June 2016, and publicly released in June 2017.

Aligned to this, as one of the world’s leading Export Finance banks and a leading Project advisor to governments and sponsors around the world, we are able to gain deep insight into funding mechanisms, commercial structures and across sectors, providing a huge body of knowledge to apply to specific sustainable project situations.

HSBC has a wide range of expertise in sustainable financing with experts across our product range.
