ESG Strategy

Integrating environmental and social factors into our investment decisions is essential to creating and protecting value for the investments we manage.

We aim to drive the agenda of the alternatives industry. Across all AXA IM Alts platforms, we’re committed to integrating ESG.

Three strategic pillars

Our approach is defined by three pillars:

  • global decarbonisation efforts
  • creating resilience against climate change
  • building tomorrow, alongside our clients

Clearly defined and measurable

All our responsible investment decisions have clearly defined aims and metrics, enabling us to measure their impact and optimise our efforts.

Impact Investing in Private Markets

Since 2013, we have pioneered the idea of driving positive social and environmental impact while delivering competitive financial returns for our clients.

We prioritise investments that help to provide affordable access to critical solutions such as healthcare, education and basic financial services.

Growth equity & venture capital

As asset classes, growth equity and venture capital are well positioned to deliver attractive returns and positive impact in these critical areas.

Externally verified impact

The impact of our ESG investments is measured and verified by external agencies. This helps ensure credible and intentional outcomes.

Responsible Investment Policies

We have committed to helping the world move away from polluting industries and toward a sustainable global economy.

Our responsible investing policies define our approach to company stewardship and set out the industries that we exclude from all investments.  

Group-wide commitments

Our responsible investment policies were developed centrally and are upheld by all divisions and departments of the AXA Group.

Transparency in everything we do

We practice full disclosure, so all sides can see what we are trying to achieve. It’s another step to building the future together.
