Why did HSBC target absolute emissions, and include scope 3, for oil and gas?

HSBC’s ‘absolute financed emissions’ are the emissions produced by a company or project we bank. We’re targeting a 34% reduction in absolute financed emissions by 2030, compared with our 2019 baseline. Around 80% of emissions from the oil and gas industry arise when crude oil or gas is burned.

The majority of emissions from the oil and gas industry arise when crude oil or gas is burned – around 80% of total emissions – Scope 3 emissions are the most critical from a global warming perspective.

  • Scope 1 covers the direct emissions from a company’s operations – such as heating buildings, running vehicles, or gas flaring, in the case of oil production
  • Scope 2 covers indirect emissions from the use of purchased energy or electricity
  • Scope 3 covers indirect emissions from a value chain, including emissions from when the product is used (or burned in this case), such as those from a vehicle’s exhaust pipe

Why did HSBC follow a different approach for power and utilities?

The Bank’s longer term net zero target for the overall portfolio is absolute. For power and utilities, we’re aiming to reduce financed emissions intensity by 75% by 2030. As the energy mix in the grid becomes cleaner, absolute emissions will decouple and start to come down.
