HSBC Water Programme

 

 

HSBC Water Programme - companion to "If Our Water Could Talk"

For HSBC, being sustainable means managing our business across the world for the long term. That means achieving sustainable profits for our shareholders, building long-lasting relationships with customers, valuing our highly committed employees, respecting environmental limits and investing in communities.

Protecting and preserving the environment is a key focus of our philanthropic and volunteer efforts. We are committed to finding ways to mitigate the effects of climate change, reduce our impact on the environment and make our communities healthier places to live. We support varied initiatives and organizations that focus on environmental policy development, public awareness and education, and scientific research to improve the sustainability and resilience of eco-systems. 

Water is critical to eco-systems, and water is a huge and growing global challenge. It is essential to all human activity and a fundamental driver of socio-economic growth but, as a resource, it is under strain from population growth, development and climate change. It is because water is vital to building healthy communities and developing national economies that HSBC has chosen to invest its time and resources in the HSBC Water Programme. Launched in 2012 and backed by an investment of US$100 million over five years, the HSBC Water Programme is a partnership with three NGOs – WWF (World Wildlife Fund), WaterAid and Earthwatch. The programme will benefit communities in need and provide information for more efficient management of vital freshwater resources. To learn more, visit thewaterhub.org.
