Corporate Green Revenue Data

What data do you provide?

HSBC Climate Solutions Database comprises climate revenue data for over 3000 companies across developed, emerging and frontier markets. With over 11 years of data, it has a rich data history, and uses our proprietary framework to screen and analyse companies that offer solutions to mitigate and prepare for the impacts of climate change, thus enabling the transition towards a low-carbon economy. The framework identifies companies across four climate sectors and 21 climate themes (including areas such as wind power, transport efficiency, energy storage, bioenergy), over 70 climate sub-themes and almost 100 fourth level classifications.

The Climate Solutions database allows users to identify and screen for companies with exposure to climate change-related businesses based on various investment narratives:

  • Climate themes
  • Regional and geographical exposure
  • Company size
  • Thematic such as clean-technology, energy storage, etc.

HSBC Global Research has used the database to create stock screens that highlight companies with higher revenue exposure to themes including climate-smart cities and cleaner transport, as well to those incorporated in specific countries, including Germany and China.
