AXA today announced the publication of its 4th Climate Report. This document describes AXA's responsible investment and insurance initiatives in the fight against climate change and measures the Group's progress in implementing the objectives of the Paris Agreement by 2050.

This report meets both a legal obligation established by the French law on energy transition for green and ecological growth, and the approach of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) that AXA has supported since its creation. The report's main indicator, the " warming potential", measures the impact of the Group's investments on global warming and its contribution to the fight against climate change.

At the end of 2019, AXA's "warming potential" was 2.8°C, down compared to 2018 (3°C) and below the market average (3.6°C). This evolution notably reflects the ambitious policy implemented by AXA to align its investments with the objectives of the Paris Agreement by 2050.

Thomas Buberl
Chief Executive Officer of AXA

AXA has been a pioneer in taking ambitious measures to combat climate change. Our Climate Report is an essential tool for measuring the effectiveness of the strategy we have implemented. It also shows that we must collectively pursue our efforts to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement, notably in the context of the post-Covid 19 economic recovery
