HSBC has been a long-term supporter of education projects. In today’s knowledge economy, skills matter more than ever. So we are extending our support to help people in the communities we serve – and our own employees – to develop the skills they need to succeed at work.

We also take our environmental responsibilities seriously. We want to operate in a world where global supply chains support sustainable economic growth, by offering opportunities for decent work and minimising negative environmental impacts. As the leading global trade bank, we are ideally placed to work with our customers and other stakeholders to develop more sustainable supply chains.
