As part of our effort to be Mexico’s sustainable Bank, we have a strong community investment strategy in alliance with charities that focus on education, environment, community and health issues. This gives us the opportunity to work with a wide variety of programmes which positively influence our stakeholders and gives us the opportunity to connect further with the communities where we operate, always aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
It is worth mentioning that thanks to our scope of initiatives, we have had the opportunity to create several alliances between both the private sector and government, generating joint ventures, which maximize the impact of our efforts.
In addition to our community investment and alliances, in HSBC we seek to fulfill our clients’ desire to help, whom generously support educational campaigns and diverse social projects through our ATM’s network.
In regards of our operational sustainability, we have the REDUCE strategy to measure, manage and minimize our environmental impact through cutting the CO2 emissions created by our employees by 1.5 tonne per person per year by 2020; therefore, during 2016 in HSBC Mexico a Power Purchase Agreement was signed. Thanks to this initiative, the 50% of the energy consumed will be generated through renewable sources, which will lead us to decrease from 3.2 CO2 to 1.7 CO2 tons per colleague, achieving the country’s target.
