HSBC Launches Thought Leadership Webinar Series During Climate Week NYC

HSBC today announced its participation in Climate Week NYC through a series of webinars that will convene its thought leaders and industry experts to advance critical conversations about climate change, the global transition to a low-carbon economy, and the role the finance industry must assume to support forward progress.

Climate Week NYC, hosted in association with the United Nations and the City of New York, is one of the largest international summits focused on climate change. From September 21-27, events will be hosted from more than 20 countries including China, India, Ecuador, United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil and Denmark.

"As leaders in the industry, we must work together to put the global economy on a more sustainable and inclusive path," said Daniel Klier, HSBC Global Head of Sustainable Finance. "Financing and investing are powerful catalysts in accelerating change and building a better future. Without ongoing discussions, our communities, our prosperity and our environment are at risk. HSBC is committed to providing our expertise and experiences, along with that of our clients and partners, to further elevate the public awareness and conversation, and to meaningfully advance the transition."

Earlier this month, HSBC was recognized as the world's best bank for sustainable finance by Euromoney, which noted that "across every sector and region HSBC stands out for its commitment to developing partnerships and products that will bring finance at scale to create a more sustainable and resilient planet."

In keeping with this recognition, the bank will host three virtual events aimed at furthering the discussions around this year's Climate Week NYC focus ? rebuilding after COVID-19 and lessons to be learned in the pursuit of a net-zero future. To register for the events, please see the links below:
