Collaboration across the Greater Bay Area – HSBC supports Hengan Group’s sustainable development

  • Article

Sustainable transformation of supply chain and production line plays a key role in facilitating China’s efforts towards its ‘dual carbon’ goals. During this transition process, a finance solution that aligns with the company’s sustainable development goals could help businesses to reduce their operating costs, improve production efficiency and reduce the environmental impact in manufacturing process.

Through collaboration between HSBC Macau and HSBC China, we provide a tailored-made sustainable financing for Hengan Group’s subsidiary in Macau, a leading household paper manufacturer in China. HSBC provides them with expert advice in sustainable development and green project governance, and helps them integrate sustainable development into daily operations and production lines. This green trade finance facility supports Hengan Group’s overseas procurement of the wood pulp raw materials that are certified by the "Forest Stewardship Council" or "Chain of Custody", as part of their supply chain and manufacturing process.

Public awareness of personal hygiene has increased under the pandemic. In response to growing consumers’ demand for high quality hygiene products, we’re committed to exploring a sustainable path of production to improve our product and support China to meet its dual carbon goals.
