IMPLEMENTATION OF THE EQUATOR PRINCIPLES

HSBC’s Implementation reporting can be found publicly here: http://www.hsbc.com/our-approach/sustainability/finance/equator-principles. We meet the requirements of the Annex B of the Equator Principles, and we also provide further details not required – for instance, we provide three year trends, report on the value of loans, on project-related bridge loans, and on loans for renewable energy projects.
