Axa Mansard pushes actions on climate, plants 5,000 trees

Underwriting firm, AXA Mansard has initiated a tree-planting movement, tagged “AXA Roots Movement”, aimed at stemming the effect of climate change on the environment.

The movement kicked off during the yearly week dedicated to Customer Service Relations (CSR) activities termed “AXA Week for Good” it said in a statement Wednesday.

The firm said one of its first activities undertaken to introduce the initiative was in collaboration with the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency (LASPARK) to plant queen palm trees in Victoria Island.

At the event, the Chief Customer and Marketing officer of AXA Mansard, Jumoke Odunlami, said the various solutions addressing the scourge of climate change, tree-planting is the most effective means to capturing and storing carbon.

The General Manager of the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, Adetoun Popoola noted that with Lagos projected to experience population explosion over the next few years, environmental assets will be impacted, hence initiatives like the AXA Roots Movement must be encouraged.

She explained that tree planting is still one of the cheapest ways to tackle the climate crisis, calling on other organizations to emulate AXA Mansard by instituting initiatives to beautify and protect the environment.
