Going green

    • Environment logo

      Like many businesses AXA UK aims to reduce the environmental impact of our day-to-day operations by consuming fewer resources, generating less waste and recycling more. But to us environmental protection is much more than this.As an insurance business, we operate by predicting and pricing risk. Climate change poses a significant risk to the planet and communities around the world, including here in the UK.

      Since 2007 AXA UK has been active in industry-wide initiatives on climate change, as a founder of the Climatewise Principles an insurance sector collaboration that aims to respond to the risks and opportunities posed by climate change and as an active participant in the Prince of Wales Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change.

      Going green

      We have worked with the Carbon Trust to calculate our carbon footprint, including energy use at our sites and business travel and set a target to reduce our energy use by 20% per employee by 2012 based on a 2006 baseline. AXA PPP does lots to support this aim – including having electric delivery vans and solar panels on the roof.

      In 2009, AXA PPP healthcare achieved ISO 14001 international standard for Environmental Management. It’s an internationally recognised measure of the way we manage our impact and involve our employees. The ISO14001 auditor was impressed with the way our employees are engaged in supporting our environment aims, and we have recently been reaccredited.

      Our employees are fully behind these initiatives - indeed many of the actions have been instigated by employees. We have champions around the business who are actively involved in everything from managing our three beehives to encouraging good printing behaviour!
