AXA XL in France partners with Cedre to support clients facing environmental risks


AXA XL Insurance today announced it is partnering with Cedre (Centre de Documentation de Recherche et d’experimentations sur les pollutions accidentelles des eaux), a French organisation that specialises in helping governments and companies worldwide mitigate the impact of ecological incidents.

Through this partnership, AXA XL will offer companies based in France with environmental risk insurance policies access to tailored recommendations through a 24/7 hotline when an incident occurs. 

Ludovic Ruiller, Underwriting Manager, Environmental for France & Benelux* at XL Catlin, now part of AXA XL, a division of AXA, explained: “French companies are increasingly aware of their need to reduce their exposure to environmental risks. No organisation is, however, immune from accidental pollutions – and when they occur, the right actions need to be taken, fast. This crisis management hotline will help our clients identify what those actions should be. ”

Francois-Xavier d’Huart, Head of Client & Broker Management for XL Catlin, part of AXA XL*, in France, added: “Cedre is our partner of choice, recognised for its expertise and whose values we share. This collaboration allows us to further differentiate our offering on the environmental insurance market.”
