The movement kicked off during the yearly week dedicated to Customer Service Relations (CSR) 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 (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.

She explained that the AXA Roots Movement is part of week-long CSR activities 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, stressed that for AXA Mansard is more than an activity. 

“We have tagged it a movement, in line with one of the two pillars of CSR agenda which are; Climate change & biodiversity and Inclusive protection”.

She said beside trees being planted with the partner, LASPARK, AXAMansard is also encouraging and providing trees for all its employees to plant in their homes over trees in their various homes, in what we have tagged “AXA Roots at Home”, she stated.

 In her remarks, the General Manager of the Lagos State Parks and Gardens Agency, Adetoun Popoola commended AXA Mansard for the initiative. She noted that with Lagos projected to experience a population explosion over the next few years, environmental assets would be impacted; hence initiatives like the AXA Roots Movement must be encouraged.
