Company history

HSBC was born from one simple idea – a local bank serving international needs. In March 1865, HSBC opened its doors for business in Hong Kong. Today we are one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organisations.

We’re committed to the transition to net zero

At the heart of our climate plan is the goal of aligning our emissions to net zero carbon emissions by 2050 or sooner, including our operations, our supply chain and our customer base.
