Energy is fundamental to human life and enables progress. Energy is central to human activities: cooking, heating, lighting or getting around. So, supplying energy means contributing to the economic and social development, as well as the well-being of all people on the planet.
The Board presented a resolution for an advisory vote on the Company's ambition for sustainable development and energy transition to carbon neutrality and its related objectives defined for 2030. This strategic direction, supported by 91.9% of the shareholders, represents a pledge by TotalEnergies to take action.
Rising to the dual challenge of meeting the energy needs of a growing world population while limiting global warming, reinventing energy production and consumption in order to get to Net Zero by 2050, together with society: those challenges underlie the raison d’être of TotalEnergies which is to provide more affordable, more reliable and cleaner energy to as many people as possible.
TotalEnergies’ ambition is to be one of the major players of the energy transition, which means notably:
TotalEnergies puts sustainable development at the heart of its strategy and its projects and operations, and wants to be a leading name in terms of commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.
To achieve its ambition of carbon neutrality (net zero emissions) by 2050, from production to the use of energy products sold to its customers (scope 1+2+3), together with society, TotalEnergies acts on three main axes and commits to targets for 2030:
