The Corporate Sustainability Assessment at a glance

The SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) is an annual evaluation of companies’ sustainability practices. Each year we assess over 7,500 companies around the world. The CSA focuses on criteria that are both industry-specific and financially material, and has been doing so since 1999.

”At AXA we believe high performance in the CSA is a good proxy for advanced sustainability practices, which translates into better awareness of long-term risks and opportunities. In a nutshell: the CSA makes us a better company for all stakeholder" 
Christian Thimann, Member of AXA Group’s Executive Committee and Group Head of Strategy, Sustainability & Public Affairs
