Overview

Our top-level screening policies - Controversial Weapons, Soft Commodities, Palm Oil and Climate Risks - apply to the vast majority of assets. We were among the first asset managers to put in place a blanket exclusion for companies which derive more than 30% of revenues from coal. We also exclude assets linked to food commodities and unsustainable palm oil production, and follow exclusion rules on controversial weapons such as Anti-Personnel Landmines.

AXA IM also manages Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and Responsible Investment funds applying additional exclusions policies to help systematically address the most severe sustainability risks in the investment decision-making process.

Climate Risk Policy

Controversial Weapons Policy

Ecosystem protection and deforestation policy

ESG Standards Policy

Our ESG integrated and ACT strategies apply our ESG standards policy, with additional exclusions on tobacco, white phosphorus weapons, UNGC breaches and poor ESG quality.
