Sustainability is at the heart of HSBC's long term strategy and we aim to ensure that sustainable business principles permeate every level of our business and culture. As a bank, we are focused on achieving long-term profit growth, building enduring customer relationships and making a positive contribution to the environment and the communities in which we operate.
As a major employer, lender and investor, we can make an important contribution to sustainability, providing financial solutions to environmental and social challenges whilst building a healthy business for the benefit of all of our stakeholders.
We do this by managing our own environmental and social impacts and the indirect impacts we have on society, through our lending and investment activities.
Some of the highlights of our recent initiatives are detailed in the links on this page.
