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.

These strategies go beyond ESG integration2, either following a process in which investment decisions are driven by ESG themes or seeking out intentional, positive, measurable and sustainable impact.
