Presentation of the Group’s purpose
The Annual Shareholders’ Meeting provided an opportunity for AXA to present its purpose: “Acting for human progress by protecting what matters”.
More than ever, businesses must transform themselves to meet the changing stakeholder expectations. This is an exhilarating challenge, which requires everyone in the company to understand its meaning and importance. As AXA enters a new phase in its history, we wanted to collectively ask ourselves what drives us and why we exist.
A company's economic performance is the foundation for success. But you can't build a collective journey like AXA's without putting this economic performance at the service of greater good. An effort in which everyone individually participates.
The Covid-19 crisis has shown that insurance has a critical role to protect societies and drive economic growth. This conviction has become clear to us all in our reflections on our purpose. Encapsulated in one sentence, "Acting for human progress by protecting what matters", it expresses who we are and defines our mission. It reflects our commitment to support our customers, unite our employees and help societies meet the major challenges of our time.
