HSBC's Paul Stanley on the financial institution's sustainability goals
February 26, 2020
HSBC's Paul Stanley, senior manager of corporate sustainability, joined Heather Clancy and Sarah Golden, Sidebar cohosts during GreenBiz 20, to discuss the company's sustainability program. Stanley says HSBC has been involved with its clients' sustainability work for a long time but didn't talk about it publicly until a couple years ago when it announced five commitments.
Since the announcement, Stanley says the company has embedded those commitments — including getting to 100 percent renewable energy in its operations by 2030 and $100 billion in sustainable financing and investing by 2025 —throughout its work.
