AXA committed to reducing climate risks
As an official partner of COP 21, the AXA Group wishes to reassert the need for all, including civil society and businesses, to mobilize and drum up support for an agreement at least as ambitious as the climate challenge is significant, both in terms of limiting the scale of carbon emissions and defining ambitious resilience strategies.
As an institutional investor, the AXA Group made strong commitments in May 2015, during the Climate Finance Day, to reduce the magnitude of climate change.
In addition to risk mitigation, adaptation to climate change is also imperative. Therefore, AXA works with public stakeholders to improve the resilience of infrastructure and populations, especially in developing countries.
