Our environmental goals

We attach great importance to protecting the environment and conserving resources. As part of our environmental strategy we continuously realize projects aimed at saving energy, paper, water, waste and CO2

 

  • 47% energy saving between 2012 and 2019

    Average energy consumption decreased from 6.6 MWh per full-time position in 2012 to 3.5 MWh in 2019.

  • 57% less office paper consumed between 2012 and 2019

    We have more than halved the amount of office paper consumed, from an average of 35 kg per full-time position in 2012 to just 15 kg in 2019. In our offices we use only 100% recycled paper or FSC-certified paper.

  • 42% less CO2 emissions between 2012 and 2019

    We have reduced our average CO2 emissions (from energy, paper, water, business travel and waste) from 1.05 (metric) tons CO2 per full-time position in 2012 to 0.60 tons in 2019.

  • 31% less water consumed between 2012 and 2019

    We have reduced average water consumption per full-time position from12 m3 in 2012 to 8 m3 in 2019.

Business trips are 100% compensated

Since 2014, all CO2 emissions from business trips have been compensated through participation in national and 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, Lausanne and Lugano.

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.
