HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 22 April 2021 - AXA Hong Kong and Macau ("AXA") is proud to be the first insurer to join the "Green Monday ESG Coalition" ("Coalition") as a founding Mission Partner, rendering our full support to combat climate change for a sustainable and resilient future.
The Coalition is led by Green Monday Group, a leading green social enterprise headquartered in Hong Kong. It aims to unify businesses with concrete carbon emission reduction actions to achieve the global "Net Zero" goal.
As the first and only insurer joining the Coalition, AXA has pledged to combat climate change through a series of innovative green actions and co-creating social education and community projects with Green Monday.

As a global insurance leader, AXA is committed to being a catalyst for action to build a green and sustainable future. We are very pleased to join forces with Green Monday and other like-minded leading firms in this Coalition to take action for our planet. This again brings to life AXA's Purpose - Act for human progress by protecting what matters."
AXA Group has been at the forefront of the fight against climate change for years. In the AXA Group "Driving Progress 2023" strategy which was announced in December 2020, reinforcing our climate leadership position is one of the five key strategic actions. With our commitments and actions towards sustainability, we were recognised as the second most responsible insurer in the world by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in 2020.
