In 2012, as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the quality of our information and our relations with individual shareholders, we set up our Shareholders' e-Advisory Committee. The aim is to facilitate regular and in-depth discussions between members of the Committee and the individual shareholder relations team on various subjects (Group news, improving communication media and digital tools, events organised by Total etc.). Members communicate via an online platform and in face-to-face meetings.
The Shareholders' e-Advisory Committee has around 15 members, all of whom are shareholders and members of our Shareholders' Club, and it represents our European individual shareholder base in a balanced way. A part of the Committee's members is replaced every year via a targeted recruitment campaign.
Total's Shareholders' e-Advisory Committee welcomes new members every year. New members are selected from Shareholders' Club members on the basis of their motivation and representativeness but also their ability to help us communicate in an innovative way.
The recruitment campaign usually takes place at the end of the year.
