HSBC: A Growing Partnership

In 1997 the HSBC Oriental Garden introduced Sydney to a new world of plants. Over two decades later, as Principal Environmental Partner, HSBC continues to explore new worlds with us. From the detail of DNA to work that spans the globe, HSBC stands for sustainable growth and sharing environmental knowledge.       

The Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust is a world leader in scientific research into plant preservation and has an extensive school education program, so it is a perfect fit with HSBC's global commitment to investing in educational and environmental programs with long-term and measurable benefits to the communities in which we operate.

  • HSBC supports the Botanic Garden’s digital learning programs, providing curriculum-led, environmentally-themed resources for school children where ever they may live. This investment has laid the foundation for the Living Learning site (, a dynamic digital platform that helps students, teachers and parents learn about and nurture the environment.

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.
