HSBC funding will contribute to the Botanic Garden’s Australian Institute of Botanical Science
. Set to launch in 2021, this new Institute
will encompass the Garden’s 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 employees show great commitment to the partnership, with dozens of employees contributing volunteer hours at the Gardens each year.
In February 2020, HSBC Australia installed a giant sculpture made out of 5,600 native plants in Sydney’s Barangaroo. Created in collaboration with the Botanic Gardens and sustained with recycled water, the ‘living lion’ celebrated the launch of HSBC’s 40th branch and highlighted our organisations’ shared commitment to sustainability.
