Our carbon promise
Let’s go further together
AXA’s mission is to support human progress by protecting what matters, and that includes the planet.
When it comes to climate change, we recognise our responsibility and are ready to do more. We’re committed to taking proactive, measured steps to ensure a resilient and sustainable future for generations to come.
This is not something we can do alone. That’s why we’re working with other companies, partner organisations, our employees and you – our customers – to achieve a low carbon future where our people and the planet are protected.
Together, we’re making a change that matters
We’ve committed to offsetting 100% of the carbon emissions produced by all new and existing car customers for one year, at no extra cost.
To do this, we’re working with partner organisations on wind, solar and hydro projects alongside large-scale tree planting to reduce CO2 emissions and deliver a meaningful impact to green spaces across Ireland.
We want to do business in a way that’s good for people and the environment and that’s why we’re doing all we can to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint.Find out more
Businesses working together for a low carbon future
We want to reduce the environmental impact of our business as much as possible and Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) is supporting Irish businesses to do just that with the Low Carbon Pledge.
We’ve signed the Low Carbon Pledge which means we’ve agreed to work towards setting science-based targets (i.e. what science says is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5 °C) by 2024 at the latest.
We’re proud to stand with a growing list of Irish businesses as, together, we transition to a low carbon economy and work towards our collective goal of creating a more sustainable way of working.Read more
Commitment backed by action
As part of our commitment to climate action, we continue to fund research that will help to shape a better world.
Since 2008, the AXA Research Fund has committed €250 million to 665 research projects in 38 countries with one key objective: to help contribute to a better world.
We’re proud to support projects that take an innovative approach to some of the most pressing challenges facing our planet. Take a look at just some of these initiatives below.
