As the world moves to a net zero carbon future, we are committed to playing our part in addressing climate change, both as a business and as stewards of our clients’ assets. HSBC Asset Management is proud to be part of this important initiative and to contribute to an industry-wide push to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

   Nicolas Moreau, Global CEO
HSBC Asset Management

The commitments made at COP26 mark a major milestone in the journey to net zero, with important implications for both financial markets and investors around the world. One clear trend we expect to emerge is an increase in alternative asset classes and issuance that provides funding for projects and businesses that support the transition to lower emissions. Sustainable infrastructure, clean tech and nature-based solutions will become more widely available.
