SUSTAINABLE LEADERSHIP STARTS FROM THE TOP
The Sustainability Leadership Program has helped make one of the world’s biggest financial organizations more efficient, while reducing its impact and becoming more sustainable. For HSBC, whose energy consumption is equal to that of a small city, this is no easy task. To succeed, universal buy-in is needed from the top. The program was designed to tackle sustainability using the organization’s most influential decision makers. With the scale of HSBC’s operations, the reach of its customers, and the influence it holds over its investments, the program has potential to make significant global changes.
