Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is an international, multi-stakeholder and independent non-profit organization that promotes economic, environmental and social sustainability. The GRI was established in 1997 in partnership with the United Nations’ Environment Programme (UNEP).  GRI has developed Sustainability Reporting Guidelines that strive to increase the transparency and accountability of economic, environmental, and social performance and provides all companies and organizations with a comprehensive sustainability reporting framework that is widely used around the world.

From reporting period 2014, Total used the GRI G4 guidelines and reported in accordance with the Core level. Since 2017, Total is using the GRI Standards.

From 2016, this GRI index table also included references to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) based on the mapping tool published by the SDG Compass.

In 2017, Total adopted the GRI Standards and continued to report in accordance with the Core level. The GRI index table is based on various sources of information: Total's 2017 Registration Document (i.e. the Annual report), Total's 2017 Climate report, Total's 2018 Human Rights Briefing Paper, Total's corporate website, etc.
