Protecting Bermuda

Safeguarding the local environment for future generations

What are we doing to help?

As well as HSBC's global plan to become carbon net zero by 2050, we also support local initiatives to help protect our unique Bermudian environment.

Recycled cards - a more sustainable way to pay

We're the first bank in Bermuda to issue cards made from recycled plastic. This is part of our global strategy to reduce our carbon emissions and achieve the goal of being net zero by 2050.

Our cards will be made from 85% recycled PVC plastic. We're already issuing recycled cards for our MasterCard retail customers. Shortly, we'll be doing the same for those with Visa cards. The next phase will focus on cards issued to our Business Banking customers.

In order to be as sustainable as possible, we’ll only replace your card when it naturally expires or is lost, stolen or damaged.

Our charity partners

We support a number of local charities and initiatives such as:

  • Bermuda Zoological Society Micro Forest
  • Bermuda High School She Leads Programme
  • BIOS Climate Classroom
  • BUEI Youth Climate Summit
  • Ignite, Young Adult Entrepreneurship Programme
  • The Women’s Resource Centre, Transformational Support Services
