AXA Mansard has initiated a tree-planting movement, tagged ‘AXA Roots Movement’, aimed at stemming the effect of climate change on the environment.
A statement said the movement kicked off during the yearly week dedicated to customer service activities termed, ‘AXA Week For Good’.
One of the first activities undertaken by the insurer to introduce the initiative was in collaboration with the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency to plant queen palm trees on Victoria Island.
At the event, the Chief Customer and Marketing Officer, AXA Mansard, Jumoke Odunlami, said tree-planting was the most effective means of tackling climate change.
She explained the AXA Roots Movement was part of a week-long CSR activity under the global umbrella of the ‘AXA Week for Good’, an initiative that encourages employees in over 50 AXA entities globally to come together to give their time and resources to act for good.
Odunlami said that for AXA Mansard, “This is more than an activity. We have tagged it a movement, in line with one of the two pillars of the CSR agenda which are climate change & biodiversity and Inclusive protection.
