Approaches to Climate Change Remain to Be Important Credibility Indicators for Insurance Firms


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/25/2021 -- The credibility of insurance organizations is increasingly being tied into the sustainability approach of the business. AXA has been something of a pioneer in this field and was the first insurer to restrict underwriting coal projects in 2017. The move garnered widespread praise for the business from climate campaigners but also put AXA under something of a spotlight. Now, the insurer is being urged to take action in terms of its commitments to oil and gas. AXA Group ranks among the Top 10 underwriters of the oil and gas industry, including insuring the exploration of oil reserves in fragile ecosystems, such as those at the mouth of the Amazon where many endangered species live. AXA has now received an open letter from the Insure Our Future coalition, Reclaim Finance and SumofUs, indicating that the company's leadership on climate topics is on the line if it doesn't take action where its oil and gas commitments are concerned.
