Sustainability at HSBC Germany

For HSBC, sustainability means building up business activities over the long term and taking social, ecological and economic aspects into account in our decisions. Thereby we can promote both economic and sustainable growth.

Thus, we pursue an integrated corporate strategy based on responsible entrepreneurial action, composed of two elements: First, the sustainable finance unit, which is concerned with enabling ‘green’ financial flows. Second, community investing/future skills, which strives to equip our clients and employees with knowledge and skills necessary in a global economy.
