Sustainable supply chains
As a leading global trade bank, HSBC is ideally placed to support our customers and other companies as they seek to do business with each other in a more responsible and sustainable way.
An estimated 80 per cent of global trade passes through supply chains – networks of customers and suppliers that contribute to delivering an end product or service to market.
In many industries, it is a company’s supply chain – rather than the company itself – that is responsible for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions and therefore offers the greatest potential for environmental improvements. By setting high procurement standards, buyer firms can help drive sustainable practices in supplier businesses. We want to operate in a world where global supply chains support sustainable economic growth by minimising negative environmental impacts.
