Corporate Responsibility: Bringing sustainability to business and protecting communities.
What does Corporate Responsibility mean to us?
Corporate Responsibility is at the heart of how we help our partners build their business, whilst protecting people, communities, and the environment. It means fighting climate change, addressing social inequalities, and giving back to society. Combining our passion with advanced expertise, we design and deliver worldwide solutions for partners and communities to protect what matters, when it matters.

Our core value, ‘One AXA’, is about combining the best resource and expertise within our business for each project. This enables us to offer innovative solutions to our partners and support their customers’ specific needs. Integrity, passion, and strong ethical principles: our values also allow our partners to thrive as a more responsible company.
AXA Partners is committed to sound professional ethics. Our Code of Ethics and Compliance sets out the commitments each of us makes in our daily work. There is no conflict between high business performance and high standards of ethics, compliance and governance - they are all interconnected.
Contributing to fighting Climate change
At AXA Partners, we care deeply about the effects of climate change on society and the environment. From hurricanes to melting ice caps, climate change has a major impact on insurance claims.
As part of our commitment to corporate and environmental responsibility, we invest in green assets, divest from polluting industries and strive to develop greener products. We also manage our environmental footprint and are committed to decreasing our CO2 emissions with targets covering energy, business travel, water, paper, and waste.
Social inequalities & inclusion
Whether it is promoting gender parity in senior leadership roles or improving the inclusion of workers with disabilities, we consider fighting social inequalities as part of our role as a socially responsible company. This means making special efforts in recruiting as well as ensuring the accessibility of our sites (physical and virtual).
We want also to ensure that our solutions are as accessible and as inclusive as possible, by finding new ways to reach populations who do not usually have access to traditional insurance, and by answering to the specific needs of our customers: disabilities, women entrepreneurs, youth, etc. Protecting people and enhancing their opportunities is at the heart of all we do.
Giving back to society
It is not enough to just offer products and services to vulnerable communities. We firmly believe in giving back to society in the broader sense.
Our employees are enthusiastic participants in corporate philanthropy and volunteering, donating their time and skills with passion to key social projects. Their contributions include local community activities ranging from diversity and inclusion awareness to zero waste training for employees.
Our philanthropic program, SOLIMED, aims to improve access to healthcare by providing much-needed equipment to under-supplied hospitals. With SOLIMED, we develop skill-based sponsorship, while having an impactful contribution on local communities. We aim to foster solidarity by helping individuals, businesses, and societies to grow and thrive.
AXA Partners: a long history of quality and caring services
Our history stretches back almost 75 years with the creation of the first travel assistance company, offering a medical repatriation service. This pioneering spirit lived on in 2015 with the creation of AXA Partners.
Across the UK and Ireland, we offer a portfolio of assistance products and services that are designed to complement or expand your core business areas. Each one can be combined with any other service to provide a solution that suits your needs.
AXA Hearts in Action
Our employees have the opportunity to support their local communities through AXA Hearts in Action, a global volunteering program acting mainly in the areas of exclusion, risk prevention, and environmental protection.
They also participate in the AXA annual Corporate Responsibility Week by giving time and resources to help local charities and good causes. This special event honours our volunteers’ commitment.
