HSBC is fully supporting the shift to a net zero economy. This complex and evolving landscape requires unprecedented collaboration with industries and government bodies to channel capital in a way that drives transition. HSBC is collaborating with experts from industry, academic and government institutions to better understand the best way to drive emissions outcome-based decisions. HSBC’s Centre of Sustainable Finance aims to collate and share the thinking and outputs of these collaborative projects, in order to scale and replicate the transition across geographies and sectors.
Transitioning to a net zero economy means rewiring the financial system to look at aligning investment to emissions pathways. To move faster on doing this, the financial sector must share ideas and collaborate with industry experts to understand what works in practice and what makes sense from a climate solutions perspective. This work is fundamental to helping HSBC navigate the transition landscape.|

Breakthrough Energy Catalyst
HSBC is proud to partner with Breakthrough Energy Catalyst, a ground-breaking programme that leverages private-public capital to accelerate the development of clean technologies that will help achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. HSBC has invested USD100m to accelerate green technologies designed to support decarbonisation of high-carbon sectors in four critical areas – direct air capture, clean hydrogen, long-duration energy storage, and sustainable aviation fuel.
HSBC joined the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) in 2021, along with 42 banks from 23 countries, to unlock the banking sector's potential to accelerate the global transition to net zero. We're a founder member of the industry-led, UN-convened Net Zero Banking Alliance – part of GFANZ. We also co-chaired the GFANZ workstream that set out strategies for financial transition plans.
