AXA Climate launches risk course
The Climate School, the e-learning arm of sustainable insurance and consulting company AXA Climate, has announced a new training module. The course, Act-Risk Management, created in partnership with risk consulting firm Arengi, comes after months of floods, drought, wildfires, hurricanes and extreme weather events across the globe have promoted rising fears about climate change’s impact on business.
The course offers practical advice for risk specialists on how best to prepare their companies for climate risks; the good practices they should adopt; and, how to find their way through new guidelines.
The course is a pillar of the ACT element of the AXA Climate curriculum, where practitioners access guidance on actions they can take in their day jobs to play a role in turning their businesses green.
“Today, companies are undergoing profound transformations in order to anticipate and reduce the impacts of growing climate risks,” said Antoine Poincaré, head of The Climate School at AXA Climate. “Risk Managers have an essential role to play in this transformation. With this training, we give them the means to contribute fully, by developing good practices and helping them to better identify the opportunities that can be seized.”
