We believe the innovations, initiatives and policies outlined in this report will enable our clients and our people to make a meaningful contribution to this global endeavour.
Acting decisively on climate issues
Climate change is a risk to us all. At AXA IM, we are determined to tackle the impact of climate-related risks, and we have made a number of key commitments to support our ambitions.
We believe as a major global investor, business and employer, we have a role in generating positive and measurable progress for the global economy, the planet and the communities in which we live. As part of this, here, we share the innovations and practices that lie at the heart of our climate strategy.
Tackling climate change starts from within
We believe that the global mission to end climate change starts at home.
Enhancing climate consciousness
Our commitment to making changes within the business does not stop with corporate steps. Helping our employees to take a more conscious role in preventing climate change is also essential.
Ambitious plans for our investments
We want to redefine our goals for investing and set them within a wider global context. Investing to prevent climate change is an effort for us all, and we want to demonstrate how we’re doing it.
