Ripples of Change: The Sustainability Wave

Oct 25, 2021

With temperatures escalating 0.2 degrees every decade, climate change is an urgent issue countries are racing to address. Concerted global action and emission targets have led to stimulus packages that now drive the growth and development of the global green economy, currently equivalent to 5% of the world’s listed equity market. 1

In response, today’s changemakers are tackling climate change challenges in diverse ways.

On the innovation front, cell-cultured meat is igniting fresh possibilities in food production in a way that conserves environmental resources. 

In addition, as a means to improve farming efficiency, satellites are now deployed to observe agricultural activity on a larger scale, helping both farmers and the communities who are dependent on crop harvests.

In the realm of business corporations, transitioning to a net zero world on a larger scale is taking hold, as investors increasingly demand more accountability from companies to be, and stay, carbon neutral.

Small decisions drive lasting change

A green transition cannot be achieved alone. It requires concerted international effort in which both countries and individuals play their part to address and adapt to the impact of climate change.

Just as a drop of water leads to wider change through the ripple effect, your investment decisions, too, can start a chain reaction leading to a more sustainable world. 

HSBC Global Private Banking’s Sustainability Forum recently brought together some of Asia’s leading thought leaders to shed light into the promising new universe of sustainable investing.

In the session, they shared the latest trends on new opportunities within the green economy that will positively impact the environment as well as the next generation.
