Climate & energy

AXA is committed to climate protection and renewable energies and supports the Energy Strategy 2050 in Switzerland. 

  • 100% renewable energy
  • The main focus of our sustainability strategy
  • Promotion of e-mobility

Environmental targets for 2020 – already achieved in 2017!

As part of our environmental strategy we continuously realize projects in order to save energy and CO2

 

  • 44% energy saving

    Every year we save as much electricity as is consumed by 1,900 households.

  • 64% less office paper

    For its office operation, AXA exclusively uses 100% recycled paper. Our customers are encouraged to switch to paperless correspondence.

  • 39% less CO2

    This is how much CO2 a car emits if you drive round the earth 220 times.

Business trips are 100% compensated

All CO2 emissions from business trips have been compensated since 2014 through participation in international climate protection projects.

Electricity from 100% renewable sources

Since 2009, AXA has drawn its power from 100% renewable energy, mostly from hydropower. It also produces its own energy from solar power with its own photovoltaic systems on the AXA office buildings in Winterthur and Lausanne.

Environmentally friendly mobility

Our employees have the opportunity to be environmentally friendly when traveling in Switzerland. We offer generous bike stations, e-charging stations and Mobility as a car-sharing partner. 

Mobile working

Today, more than 10% of our employees already work regularly from home. This saves many commutes.
