Total's response re alleged non-compliance with French duty of vigilance law (unofficial English translation)

Author: Total, Published on: 21 June 2019

...Total is fully aware of the climate issues, has long been recognizing them publicly, takes them into consideration in its strategy, and in this regard, develops concrete actions... following the Paris Agreement, Total was the first oil and gas producer to dedicate a report dealing with climate-related issues... These actions are structured around [five] key strands:

  1. improve the energy efficiency of our operations;
  2. grow on the integrated gas chain, an essential alternative to coal;
  3. develop our presence on the whole low-carbon electricity chain;
  4. promote bioenergies (biofuels, biogas);
  5. develop carbon storage, through nature based solutions (forests…), or capture/storage/use of carbon dioxide.

Total’s Management Board agreed that the duty of care plan of Total, which will be included in the 2019 annual management report will process the risks linked to climate change... We have taken note of the concerns of the local governments and associations that you represent and offer to meet them in order to discuss the ways in which we can pursue our shared ambition of tackling climate change.
