Environment

Our climate ambition

We are powering new solutions to the climate crisis and supporting the transition to a low-carbon future, moving to carbon net zero ourselves and helping others to do so too. We have the ability to catalyse a resilient, vibrant future by financing the transformation of businesses and infrastructure to a low-carbon economy.

Achieving the scale of change required for the world to meet the Paris Agreement goal of net zero by 2050 will require us to go further and faster. As such, in October 2020, we set out a three-partplan to accelerate financing for the transition to net zero, underpinned by strong governance and risk management.

Our net zero ambition

  • Align financed emissions to achieve net zero by 2050 or sooner
  • Be net zero in our operations and supply chains by 2030 or sooner

Supporting our customers

  • We aim to support our clients in the transition to a sustainable future with $750bn to $1tn of financing and investment over the next 10 years

Unlocking climate solutions and innovations

  • We plan to help transform sustainable infrastructure into a global asset class, and create a pipeline of bankable projects

Next steps

We increased our disclosures under TCFD, but we recognise more work is needed as methods to measure progress evolve. HSBC will propose a special resolution on climate change at its 2021 AGM to: set, disclose and implement a strategy with short and medium term targets to align HSBC's provision of finance9 to the Paris Agreement goals; publish and implement a policy to phase out the financing9 of coal-firedpower and thermal coal mining by 2030 in markets in the EU / OECD, and by 2040 in other markets; report on progress against that strategy and policy on an annual basis, starting with the 2021 Annual Report and Accounts

Governance

We are committed to working with our regulators to manage the safety of the financial system. We aim to act with courageous integrity and learn from past events to help prevent their recurrence. We meet our responsibilities to society, including through being transparent in our approach to paying taxes. We also seek to ensure we respect global standards on human rights in our workplace and our supply chains, and continually work to improve our compliance management capabilities.

Respecting human rights

Our pioneering scheme to help survivors of human trafficking is now used as a model for making financial services more accessible to vulnerable communities through the UN's Finance Against Slavery and Trafficking ('FAST') Survivor Inclusion Initiative

Protecting data

  • We are committed to protecting and respecting the data we hold and process
  • We have invested in business and technical controls to help prevent, detect and react to cybersecurity threats

Supporting financial inclusion

  • In the UK, we are reducing barriers for those with no fixed address as well as for survivors or human trafficking; we also introduced banking services for refugees in Hong Kong
  • We invest in financial education to help customers, colleagues and people in our communities be confident users of financial services. In 2020, we provided more of our own financial education content and had over 1.7 million unique visitors to our digital content

Safeguarding the financial system

  • We have embedded a strong financial crime risk management framework across all

global businesses and all countries and territories in which we operate

  • We continue to invest in new technology to enable us to make an impact in the fight against financial crime; each month we screen over 708 million transactions across 275 million accounts for signs of money laundering and financial crime

A responsible approach to tax

  • We seek to pay our fair share of tax and to minimise the likelihood of customers using our products and services to evade or inappropriately avoid tax
  • We are committed to applying both the letter and spirit of the law in all jurisdictions in which we operate

Restoring trust

  • Restoration of trust in our industry remains a significant challenge as past misdeeds

continue to remain in the spotlight

We paid a total of $574m in regulatory fines in 2020 (2019: $1,271m)13. We have sought to learn from these past mistakes and are seeking to develop and implement specific measures designed to prevent recurrence of similar events in the future
