Total: a responsible production
Total has made environmental stewardship a priority, and recently demonstrated that commitment by being continuously present in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index since 2004 and the FTSE4Good since 2001, two major indexes for socially responsible investments.
Oil sands development brings with it several major environmental challenges, including CO2 emissions, water consumption, land footprint and tailings management.
Keenly attuned to these challenges, we have deliberately selected technologies that deliver the best available environmental performance, right from the project design phase.
Aside from the Surmont in situ project, none of our projects will go into production before 2017.
We will use the interim period to further enhance our technologies and develop innovative solutions that will enable us to reduce our environmental impact to an even greater extent.
