Hang Seng is the only bank in Hong Kong that is a constituent of the Dow Jones Sustainability Asia Pacific Index and the FTSE4Good Developed Index.
Hang Seng Bank aspires to become a leading entity to drive ESG in the banking industry. To achieve this, we are stepping up the consideration and inclusion of ESG issues with respect to our products, services, operations and disclosures.
We are aware that we need to continue to broaden the variety of our products and services, as well as increase our contribution to tackling issues that require a global response. In particular, we shall focus on sustainable finance that addresses one out of many major and urgent challenges of climate change.
The Board takes overall responsibility for ESG matters and their integration into the Bank’s strategies. It guides the management and monitoring of ESG matters, which have been identified as relevant to the Bank by the Executive Committee based on the recommendation of the newly-formed ESG Steering Committee.
Hang Seng Bank is now more ESG-focused. Watch the video to learn more about our ESG implementation plan for 2021 and beyond.
