HSBC wins sustainable finance recognition

SBC’s expertise in sustainable finance has been underlined as it took home three major prizes at Euromoney’s annual regional awards.

It was named Best Bank for Sustainable Finance for the Asia, Middle East and Western Europe regions in the prestigious awards organised by the global business and finance publication.

Daniel Klier, HSBC’s Global Head of Sustainable Finance, said: “Winning this award in three regions is testament to our leadership in sustainable finance. I expect to see an acceleration of climate-aligned financing as the world recovers from COVID-19. We are in a great position to support a more sustainable and resilient recovery.”

The award judges said: “HSBC is the go-to bank for the financing of renewables and for those looking to transition to a less carbon-intensive future. It also pushes scalable innovation in sustainability in a way that perhaps no other bank does.”

“We are in a great position to support a more sustainable and resilient recovery”
