HSBC's investment in the Royal Botanic Garden's Investigating Rainforest Resilience project will bring together critical genetic information, seed resources and seed biology in a whole of ecosystem approach to preserving endangered ecological communities.
HSBC funding will contribute to the Botanic Gardens' Australian Institute of Botanical Science. Set to launch in 2021, the new Institute will encompass the Gardens' world-leading research programs, facilities and collections, advancing the fundamental knowledge of plants to drive effective solutions to the damaging effects of a changing climate.
Collaborating for Conservation and Sustainability
HSBC's staff show great commitment to the partnership, with dozens of employees contributing volunteer hours at the Garden every year.
In February 2020, HSBC Australia installed a sculpture made of 5,600 native plants in Sydney's Barangaroo. Created in collaboration with the Royal Botanic Garden and sustained with recycled water, the Living Lion celebrated the launch of HSBC's 40th branch and highlighted our organisations' shared commitment to sustainability.
