At HSBC, we recognize the need to find new solutions and increase the pace of change if the world is to achieve the Paris Agreement’s goal to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels. That is why the HSBC Group launched a global, five-year USD100 million Climate Solutions Partnership. One of the key aims of the philanthropic program is to scale up climate innovation. To realize this aim in Canada, we are supporting four local programs that are helping more than eighty cleantech ventures accelerate their path to commercialization and support the transition to a low carbon economy. Explore the programs below.
