HSBC's carbon footprint

HSBC reported Total CO2e Emissions - Market-Based Scope 1 + Scope 2 for the twelve months ending 31 December 2021 at 329 Kt (-34 /-9.4% y-o-y). Also positively, carbon intensity declined to 6.6 t (-0.6 /-8.3% y-o-y).

HSBC's Scope 3 emissions was down at 1,997 Kt (-96 /-4.6% y-o-y). The decline accelerated compared to the CAGR of -2.3% since 4Q'18.

The company is committed to achieving net zero for all Scopes by 2030, which translates into the estimated reduction of -236 Kt per annum over the period of FY2021 - FY2030. This target, however, has not been recognised as science-based (and as aligned with Paris Agreement) by the SBTi.
