    Why is it important for HSBC Asset Management to be part of the COP26 conference?
    As a global asset manager, we have an important role to play in mobilising capital to combat climate change.

    COP26 is an historic opportunity that brings together the public and private sectors to accelerate the global transition to net zero. Climate change needs borderless solutions and action. Our global scale and footprint in emerging markets makes us particularly well positioned to allocate funds where the most impact can be made.
    One of the main objectives of COP26 is to protect and restore nature for the benefit of people and climate – this is a principal area that we aim to focus on with the creation of Climate Asset Management. Our priorities include helping clients to achieve their sustainability and investment goals; developing natural capital as a new asset class; and encouraging positive behavior through engagement and collaborating with the industry.
