Why we're working together

We’ve joined forces with HSBC and the World Resources Institute (WRI) to form the Climate Solutions Partnership.

The five-year philanthropic collaboration aims to scale up climate innovation ventures and nature-based solutions, and help transition the energy sector towards renewables in Asia, by combining our resources, knowledge and insight.

Together, with a network of local partners, we will help climate solutions scale into commercial reality with real-world impact.
