The Total Ecosolutions Program

Our ambition : to become the responsible energy major

Climate issues are an integral part of our corporate strategic vision. We aim to help keep global warming below 2°C in relation to preindustrial levels by 2100 thanks to three levers: improving the carbon intensity of our current production mix, developing renewable energies and improving our energy efficiency.


One of our areas of continuous progress is energy efficiency: consume less in our processes and develop products that help consumers consume  less.
