Don’t Bank on Plastics
HSBC is Funding the Plastics Crisis
Plastic production is on the rise – polluting oceans, harming human health and fuelling the climate crisis.
Banks play a key role in financing the plastics industry.
We are calling on HSBC – the biggest bank in the UK – to lead by example and invest in a fairer, greener future.
Add your name to our open letter to Noel Quinn (HSBC Group Chief Executive).
It’s time for HSBC to take action.
We are proud to be part of Break Free from Plastic – the global movement envisioning a future free from plastic pollution.
“99% of plastic comes from fossil fuels. If we are serious about tackling the climate crisis we must stop financing the expansion of plastic production and shift money towards companies that are committed to ending plastic pollution. UN member states are working towards a Global Plastics Treaty. The world is getting behind the solutions to the plastic crisis, and we need banks like HSBC to play their part too.”
