COP22, forming the bridge between vision and implementationThe 22nd Conference of the Parties, or “COP 22”, opened in Marrakech today. This “bridge” between vision and action, as COP 22 President Salaheddine Mezouar described it, aims to define the implementation of the Paris Agreement, which was adopted one year ago and entered into force on Friday, November 4, 2016.
Held in Marrakech, Morocco, from November 7 to 18, COP 22 aims to reaffirm and reinforce international efforts to fight climate change, especially in Africa, a continent that is too often overlooked in international negociations.
AXA has joined COP 22 in the fight against climate change. The Group emphasizes responsible investing, embeds corporate responsibility and sustainability criteria into its products and services, and works closely with research institutions and the various stakeholders to reduce its carbon footprint.
