What we do lies at the intersection of the greatest challenges facing the world today — energy supply and environmental protection. Our responsibility as an energy producer is to meet both of these challenges as best we can, in a sustainable way. That means managing our energy use and offering our customers ways to do the same. But more importantly, it also means inventing a new energy model that combines fossil fuels with low- and zero-carbon energy sources.
For a global corporate citizen like Total, being responsible also means protecting our employees, contractors, neighbors and customers from the potential effects of our products and activities. We are also committed to driving shared development, ensuring ethical conduct and promoting equal access to jobs and promotions.
- We are targeting a 15% reduction in direct greenhouse gas emissions from our operated activities in 2015 versus 2008, on a comparable basis.
- We have been present in the photovoltaic solar industry since 1983 and in the biofuels industry since 1992.
