Green and sustainability bonds

HSBC is one of a number of financial institutions that are playing an important role in shaping the fast-developing green bond market.

HSBC is a member of the International Capital Market Association’s (ICMA) Executive Committee for the Green Bond Principles, which are a set of voluntary standards for issuers of green bonds. The HSBC Green Bond represents a further step in supporting investors to meet their objectives while supporting clients to realise opportunities in the low-carbon economy.

HSBC’s Green Bond Framework is consistent with the current Green Bond Principles, as held by ICMA, and reflects recent guidance by investor groups. HSBC has obtained a second party review from CICERO on the HSBC Green Bond Framework and been certified as ‘Dark Green’.
