[Total and the Climate]
Energy is central to life.
Fossil fuels have allowed humans to experience unprecedented growth, but the extraordinary changes they have ushered in are now threatening our planet.
Global warming due to human activity is already having a heavy impact on our environment.
People put more than 50 billion tons of CO2e into the atmosphere each year, and temperatures will continue to rise.
[The time is over for asking questions. Everyone must act to reduce emissions.]
Total is a key player in the energy industry. It’s our duty to participate in the energy transition. We recognize the Paris Agreement as a major step forward,
[and are mobilizing to reconcile climate and development.
We promote energy that is more affordable, reliable and clean.
How are we doing this?]
By developing natural gas, which emits less CO2 than coal.
By investing in renewable energies to produce low-carbon electricity.
By making our facilities more energy efficient.
By encouraging sparing use of oil.
By supporting our customers in their energy transition.
By investing in carbon sinks.
And by calling for a price on carbon.
