How to invest sustainably

Investing in companies and projects that are leading the way to a more sustainable world not only helps us reach a net-zero economy by 2050 but can deliver more sustainable returns in the future. The vast majority of our assets under management integrate our ESG analysis and quantitative scores into the investment process, while applying our core exclusions policy. We believe this can deliver value for clients by identifying risks and opportunities linked to key sustainability trends in the global economy.  

SUSTAINABLE INVESTING

How to invest for the people and planet

Our sustainable investing strategies are at the forefront of responsible investing at AXA IM Core. The strategies here are designed to help clients target specific sustainability goals around issues such as climate change and inequality while continuing to adopt the reinforced approach to sustainability risks and good governance practices.

AXA IM’s road to net zero

The road to a net zero world is challenging to navigate and requires a collective effort. Every individual, company, and government must play its part. There isn’t one single answer or path to solving this challenge, but we want to be one of the leaders on this journey: in our investment choices, the products we offer, the way we engage and vote, and manage our business.
