Climate-aware Investing

Climate-aware investing at AXA IM

As a responsible asset manager, we actively invest for the long term to help the future for the people and the planet. Climate change, and the response to it, are perhaps the most pressing challenges as we pursue that goal. 

Governments around the world are seeking to limit global warming by aligning economies with the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement (COP 21). This change has gathered momentum behind growth that follows a lower emissions model, with major companies making carbon neutral commitments and green bond issuance on the rise.  

These developments are changing how we analyse and assess companies and sovereigns. Climate has become the dominant theme in the world of environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis, and we have long believed that effective ESG investing helps reveal the most sustainable businesses. 

At AXA IM, we have embedded more than 30 responsible investment (RI) specialists throughout our research and investment teams1 . We believe RI and ESG should be at the heart of the business.

Innovative companies are creating solutions to address pressures on scarce natural resources and the need for greenhouse gas emission reduction


Green bonds

Green bonds are among the most interesting innovations of the last decade in the field of socially responsible investment products


US high yield low carbon
