Climate change

We are aware of the risks posed by climate change and its longer-term impact on investment portfolios; we are committed to playing our part in addressing these issues.

We believe global action is necessary to limit climate change impact on investor holdings, portfolios and asset values.

A Low-carbon economy

We aim to increase the resilience of our client investments to climate change risks, identify lower-carbon investment opportunities and assist in the global transition to a low-carbon economy.

Limiting climate change to well below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels will drive significant change to the current structure of the global economy. This ambitious target creates new investment risks and opportunities.

Climate change policy

We encourage improved disclosure on climate-related risks and as such HSBC Global Asset Management has signed the Montreal Carbon Pledge, a commitment to measure and publicly disclose on an annual basis the carbon footprint of our clients’ investment portfolios.
