Launch of the “AXA For Progress Index”

Last year at the Shareholders’ Meeting, AXA presented its purpose, “Acting for human progress in protecting what matters” to express the Group’s identity, to define its mission and to set a long-term strategic horizon. To make its purpose tangible and operational for all teams, the Group today launches the “AXA For Progress Index”. It aims to measure and amplify the impact of AXA’s purpose on the Group’s activities through precise objectives:

  • Investments
    - Reduction of the carbon footprint of the General Account assets by 20% by 2025
    - Development of the green investment portfolio to reach €25bn by 2023
  • Insurance
    - Strengthening the share of insurance products with a positive impact on the environment, through the guarantees or services offered
    - Promotion of inclusive insurance for vulnerable populations
  • Corporate responsibility
    - Training all employees on climate issues by 2023
    - Carbon neutrality of our activities by 2025 by reducing emissions from our operations by 20% and offsetting residual emissions

The “AXA For Progress Index” will also incorporate AXA's position in the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment, which recognizes the most responsible companies in the financial sector.

Thomas Buberl

Chief Executive Officer of AXA

After defining our purpose, the launch of the “AXA For Progress Index” is an important step which will allow it to permeate all of our actions. We will also accelerate its deployment by integrating the index’s objectives into our executive compensation criteria. This initiative reinforces our approach of confirming AXA’s responsible commitments towards all its stakeholders.
