HSBC says vandalism is not okay after climate activists shatter windows of London HQ

After windows at its London headquarters were shattered by climate activists, HSBC said that it welcomed dialogue on climate change but it could not condone vandalism or actions that damaged property.

“We welcome meaningful dialogue on our climate strategy, however, we cannot condone vandalism or actions that put people and property at risk,” a spokesman said. “We have an ambition to be net zero by 2030 and to bring our financed emissions to net zero by 2050.”

“We have also committed to set out short and medium term transition targets, and to phase out the financing of coal-fired power and thermal coal mining by 2040 globally. We remain committed to supporting our customers in their transition to net zero,” the HSBC spokesman said.
