In 2020, AXA’s global score reached 88/100, an increase of 5 points compared with last year. Our ranking in the insurance industry goes from 3rd place in 2019 to 2nd place this year. We have made progress in two criteria covered by the ranking: +8 points in "Governance and Economic", +3 points in "Social".
I am very pleased that we are now ranked number 2 in the DJSI. This demonstrates that corporate responsibility is an important component of the Group’s strategy and it illustrates the strength of our purpose: act for human progress to protect what matters.
