Marco Morelli, Executive Chairman at AXA IM, said: “Targets have been set for the majority of asset where net zero methodologies are available for the time being, and where we have the ability to set such targets from a legal perspective. Going forward, our aim is to continue to grow the proportion of net zero-aligned AUM as reliable methodologies become available for all asset classes. As part of our net zero commitment, we will continue to engage with a number of companies which are not yet on a net zero-aligned trajectory. We will also continue to invest in companies providing climate solutions, innovation being essential to enable the transition.”
