HSBC powers a tram shelter in Hong Kong with solar panels

The Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI) is a visionary blueprint for global economic development while leading the global shift to a green economy. HSBC goes beyond understanding the potential opportunities which could result from the Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI), while also embracing the idea of sustainable development for a greener future.

HSBC introduced Hong Kong’s first-ever solar-driven tram shelter, lighting up the path to a greener future. Transforming a traditional channel into an innovative statement, HSBC made the tram shelter outside their main building the greenest tram shelter in Hong Kong.

Solar panels were installed on the tram shelter roof, absorbing sunlight during the day. At night, more than 60 light bulbs will be supported by solar power energy.

Taking this iconic makes public transport of Hong Kong as a symbol of the transformation, HSBC embraced the idea of the global shift, leading Hong Kong further into the concept of green economy, as well as the playing the monumental role of a significant partner to help move the Belt-and-Road Initiative (BRI) forward.
