Taking action on climate and biodiversity: AXA launches its Climate School

Sustainable transformation (climate change, biodiversity, natural resources) is the most important transformation for the business and their employees, not unlike the digital transformation of the early 2000s. Effective action requires getting educated!

The science is clear: The Earth is getting warmer at an unprecedented rate and human-made carbon emissions are the main reason why.

The impact of global warming on the entire corporate value chain is now a reality: work methods, occupations, business models, risks, dependencies, strategic choices, etc. This is the most important transformation for the business world since the digital transformation of the early 2000s. It is impossible to ignore, at the risk of seeing one’s business and credibility adversely impacted.

For businesses, the situation presents not just new risks but also new opportunities. For employees, it means understanding not only the scientific aspects of the challenge but also how these issues impact their jobs.

76% of employees are ready to take action on climate change in the context of their work. (source: Kite Insights (2020) Climate School Employee Survey). Their engagement is a huge opportunity for companies facing the challenge of sustainable transformation. These employees/citizens want to get involved and expect the same from their employer.  

In response to this challenge, the Climate School is the first program that adds value for human resources and sustainability departments to inform and train all employees to achieve the sustainable transformation of their profession.

The online training program is structured along 2 major lines:

  1. Science: to understand climate change, natural resources, biodiversity and the impact it has on our lives. Six in-depth courses organized around 40 short videos and quizzes.
  2. Action: sustainable transformation affects all professions today. Job by job, you have to understand how and map out your roadmap in order to act and adapt. 10 courses per profession (IT, HR, Purchasing, Finance, Legal, etc.) organized around 50 short videos and quizzes.

The Climate School offer is designed to be deployed within companies' existing tools in just a few clicks. Naturally, companies can customize the program by adding their own in business-specific content.

For its employees, AXA has chosen to align the modules from this training around global warming issues, with a module based on nine “chapters” that will take around one hour to complete.

A key concern of your company is also one of the key personal preoccupations of your employees: global warming. It’s unprecedented and it enables us to trigger a massive transformation.

At the end of this training program, you will no longer view the environment in the same way.
