From 31 October to 12 November, the UK was hosting COP 26, a summit which brings together world leaders and industry experts to discuss action against climate change. The decisions made could lead to major changes in our everyday lives, and our experts from AXA Investment Managers have shared their thoughts on the implications for our investors, our business, and our planet.
The Investment COP, known as The World Climate Summit, took place on 8-9 November, and as a Planet A Partner, representatives from AXA IM attended and led discussions on how we can work together on the road to net zero.
We have shared insights throughout the whole of COP 26 on our social media accounts – follow us on #ViewOnTheCOP.
