Whether it is advisory or service solutions, HSBC is committed to its corporate customers in helping them deliver on their ESG initiatives, strategies, and targets for a sustainable future.

HSBC's Sustainable and Transition Finance Team

The HSBC Sustainable and Transition Finance Team in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT) helps customers transition to more sustainable business models.

The Team has deep technical knowledge of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) opportunities and challenges facing our customers, as well as the evolving regulatory space and its impacts. With a presence in all our markets across the region, the Team works with all our bankers to provide advice, expertise and financing solutions to our clients across Global Banking, Commercial Banking and Wealth & Personal Banking - no matter which sector they operate in or what stage of the sustainability journey they are on.

The Team is playing a leading role in helping HSBC achieve its ambition to become a net zero bank. At the heart of our climate plan is a goal to reduce financed emissions from our portfolio of customers to net zero by 2050 or sooner. To support our customers in their transition to lower carbon emissions, we are aiming to provide between USD750 billion and USD1 trillion of financing and investment globally by 2030.
