Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the United Nations adopted a new sustainable development agenda comprising 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030. Together, these objectives form a transformational roadmap designed to end poverty, protect the planet and guarantee prosperity for all.
As a global energy producer present in more than 130 countries and in line with its ambition to become the responsible energy major, Total has committed to contributing to the success of the SDGs since 2016.
The Group has led a process to better understand its contribution to the implementation of the SDGs and has identified the SDGs on which Total can have the most significant contribution, especially in the field of climate, environment, respect of human rights, and shared prosperity. These SDGs were disclosed in the framework of the publication of Total’s Registration Document 2018 and of its Statement of non-financial performance (chapter 5).
More precisely and in order to illustrate how Total’s actions contribute to the SDGs, the Group has identified corresponding SDGs to its main challenges and publishes an index table to report on its actions on each of the 17 SDGs.
