The IndiaBirdRaces - Supported by HSBC

The Bank has always played an active environmental role in India, working closely with the community and our employees to protect the living environment and to conserve natural resources. Recently, the Bank made strong commitment to tackling climate change by committing to go carbon neutral by 2006.

HSBC has set targets for environmental performance improvements in greenhouse gas emissions, water usage and the recycling of waste materials.

With support from the highly respected HSBC brand, the BirdRace has not only been made an annual event in Mumbai but it has also spread to other metros in India. The plan is to organize the event in every metro where HSBC has a presence.

The event is a wonderful platform to get bird-watchers together - absolute beginners to experienced birders to get on a team and spot as many species as possible. a platform for the uninitiated and the beginner to get on a team with an experienced Team Captain and bird-watch, spot as many species as possible but above all, enjoy the birds and lend some useful information to a region's avifauna.

The Mumbai BirdRace event has helped create an unprecedented interest in the region’s birdlife and several of those who participated have not only blossomed into ardent birders but have also blossomed into ardent conservationists as well.
