AXA has joined the Green Monday ESG Coalition, a group that seeks to promote environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) goals among Hong Kong’s business community.
The company, which is the first insurer to join the coalition, is a founding mission partner, providing its full support to combating climate change for a sustainable and resilient future. This will include through a series of innovative green actions and co-creating social education and community projects with Green Monday.
The coalition is led by Green Monday Group, a green social enterprise headquartered in Hong Kong that aims to unify businesses with concrete carbon emission reduction actions to achieve a global goal of net zero carbon emissions.
AXA’s climate goals have been outlined in its Driving Progress 2023 report released in December 2020, naming climate leadership as one of its five key strategic actions. AXA was also recognised as the second most responsible insurer in the world by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in 2020.
“Climate change is our century's biggest challenge,” said Sally Wan, chief executive of AXA Hong Kong and Macau. “As a global insurance leader, AXA is committed to being a catalyst for action to build a green and sustainable future. We are very pleased to join forces with Green Monday and other like-minded leading firms in this Coalition to take action for our planet. This again brings to life AXA's Purpose - Act for human progress by protecting what matters.”
