HSBC Bangladesh introduced Sustainability-Linked Loan for Ha-Meem Group
We have recently introduced Sustainability-Linked Loan to further support Ha-Meem Group’s journey to sustainability by improving the company’s sustainability profile and implementing environmentally friendly practises in their operations.
As a leading international Bank HSBC is committed to net zero future and play a leading role in mobilising the transition to a global net zero economy by mobilising finance to support our customers’ transition to net zero, transform our own operation and supply chain and helping to shape up and influence global policy agenda. HSBC Bangladesh is taking various initiatives in line with our global strategic priorities and local regulatory directives. Very recently we have signed up with Ha-Meem Group to provide sustainable finance linked to their plan on reduction of Green House Gas emission, water usage optimization and sourcing of organic raw materials, etc.
I congratulate HSBC for undertaking this timely initiative and getting associated with Ha-Meem Group’s sustainability endeavours. This sustainable finance will certainly secure our progress towards achieving sustainability in every aspect of our operation and HSBC played the pioneering role being our trusted long-standing financial partner. This will further strengthen our relationship with HSBC to achieve greater success together.
