AXA Climate launches ‘Net Zero School’

Axa Climate’s e-learning arm, The Climate School, has teamed up with sustainability consultants at Blunomy to develop a new 10-syllabus curriculum designed to support the decarbonisation of the global economy.

It is hoped that through the new Net Zero School training programme, knowledge workers across services companies can understand the decarbonisation challenges of some of the most CO2 intensive sectors, including oil and gas, power, agri-food, road transportation and cement.

Axa Climate School president, Antoine Poincaré said: “The demand first came from our clients. With our first training offer (the Climate School), we were talking about sustainable transformation internally but many players, especially financial players, needed to understand the trends of sustainable transformation of their clients, ie., of the whole economy. The task was immense, which is why we felt it was necessary to join forces with Blunomy, which has been working on various sectors of the real economy for years. The result is interesting because it is very concrete. We answer questions such as: are oil extraction professionals well placed to work in offshore wind? Which players in the agri-food industry can invest in biomass energy production?"

Inès Galichon, partner at Blunomy added: “Blunomy teams have now accumulated an enormous amount of expertise on the levers and roadmaps that lead to successful decarbonisation across many key sectors. Transferring that knowledge is critical and contributes to our mission to massively accelerate the transition to a Greener, common future for humanity, so we are delighted to work with a true educational pioneer in this space, Axa Climate.

Candidates for Net Zero School include regulators, financial institutions and insurance companies.
