Our ESG ratings and targets

Tham khảo xổ số miền bắcThe profile of ESG investing has risen rapidly in recent years. Fund managers and small and large investors are placing an increasing emphasis on ESG issues. This reflects changing societal and consumer expectations and a growing call for businesses to play a stronger role in tackling these issues.

Tham khảo xổ số miền bắcHSBC research suggests that, in addition to believing that businesses should do the right thing, investors increasingly see ESG issues as a differentiating factor in the long-term performance of the companies they invest in.

We work with independent ratings agencies who assess our ESG performance against that of other companies and organisations. As of January 2020, our ratings were as follows:

Agency Rating
Carbon Disclosure Project A-
Sustainalytics Medium Risk

Tham khảo xổ số miền bắcWe also set ESG-related targets to guide how we do business. These include a pledge to provide and facilitate USD100 billion in sustainable financing and investments by 2025, and a goal of ensuring that 30 per cent of our senior roles are held by women by the end of 2020. Other targets focus on improving customer satisfaction, reducing the environmental impact of our operations, and upholding high standards of conduct worldwide.

Tham khảo xổ số miền bắcThe 2020 annual incentive scorecards of the Group Chief Executive Officer, Group Chief Financial Officer and members of the Group Executive Committee have 30 per cent weightings for measures linked to these outcomes. ESG metrics are also included in the long-term incentive scorecards of executive Directors.
