Total's Corporate Governance


Total's Corporate Governance

The Board of Directors is composed of 12 directors, including eight independent directors, a director representing Total's employee shareholders and a director representing employees who is designated by the Central Works Committee. Its makeup reflects our diversity and wide range of experience, nationalities and cultures and enables us to consider the interests of all shareholders.

The Board of Directors met nine times, with an overall attendance rate of 94.9%.

It is assisted by the four committees it has created, namely Audit, Strategy, Governance & Ethics and Compensation.

We have had an active corporate governance process for many years. We follow the Corporate Governance Code of Listed Corporations published by French business associations AFEP and MEDEF. On December 19, 2015, the Board of Directors decided to once again combine the functions of Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. It also decided to appoint a lead independent director, whose responsibilities are set out in the Rules of Procedure of the Board. The lead independent director chairs the Governance & Ethics Committee.
