Sustainable Development Goals

AXA XL is also committed to contributing to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

How we contribute to the SDGs

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to build a more sustainable future for people and planet by 2030. AXA XL is playing its part in making these goals a reality in the following ways:

Target 4: Quality Education

Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning
Target: 4.5

Through our partnership with Plan India, AXA XL is helping 800 unemployed young people, particularly girls, learn vocational and work -readiness skills through intensive classroom courses.

Target 6: Clean Water and Sanitation

Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Targets: 6.1, 6.4 and 6b

Access to water is one of our strategic focus areas. We are providing clean drinking water, sanitization facilities and hygiene education to over 10,000 people in rural India. We are also funding research to explore ways drought risk can be better mitigated in the most vulnerable communities.

Target 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainale
Target: 11.5

Disaster management is a critical part of our business and we know that preparedness is just as important as relief and recovery. We are helping on-the-ground NGOs be better equipped for disasters, as well as supporting those who are displaced as a result of disaster.

Target 13: Climate Action

Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Targets: 13.1 and 13.3

Our climate research with academia has included identifying correlations between flood and cyclone frequency, and drivers of catastrophic wildfires to understand how we can better manage these risks in the future.

Target 14: Life Below Water

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
Targets: 14.2 and 14.3

Our Ocean Risk Initiative has three key focus areas: to drive the insurance industry's response to ocean risk, catalyze new product innovations and increase ocean literacy through our education program for schools.

Target 15: Life on Land

Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
Target: 15.1

We're partnering with The Nature Conservancy to assist in the creation of Blue Carbon Resilience Credits. Coastal wetlands store carbon, defend against flooding and promote biodiversity. Investors will offset carbon emissions while preserving these benefits.
