Reminder: “To borrow or not to borrow? Borrow only if you can repay!”

* Carbon saving is calculated by the carbon dioxide emission reduction assessed by the Business Environment Council and the conversion factor determined by HSBC. Carbon dioxide emission reduction is based on the carbon concentration of electricity generation, water / energy savings of the new machine / equipment and prevailing carbon credit conversion in secondary market. Carbon saving will be paid out in form of cash rebate on the credit facility. Carbon saving enjoyed by each customer is capped at 0.1% of the loan amount or HK$200,000 per annum, whichever is lower.

The Business Environment Council (“BEC”) is the independent technical partner of HSBC Sustainable Financing Programme and will determine if our customers fulfil the said environmental merit assessment criteria. To learn more about BEC, please visit www.bec.org.hk.
