Engagement with the EITI
TotalEnergies operates in over 130 countries spanning five continents: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, Middle East and North & South America, and the company is present in many EITI implementing countries. TotalEnergies believes that efforts to promote the principle of transparency must respect the sovereignty of host countries because sustainable progress cannot be achieved without the voluntary commitment of governments. Together with the EITI Secretariat, the company works to promote and put into practice EITI Principles in host countries by:
Fostering dialogue between TotalEnergies' managers and representatives from the government, civil society and the national EITI.
- Actively participating in EITI’s work, conferences and activities through being a member of the international EITI Board.
- Promoting the implementation of the EITI Standard in its countries of operation and whenever the Company has the opportunity.
- Sharing resources and recommendations based on its knowledge and experience.
- Promoting the implementation of the EITI process in all of the countries where it operates.
Every year since 2015, TotalEnergies has disclosed a full list of its hundreds of consolidated entities. As Patrick Pouyanné, Chief Executive Officer at TotalEnergies explained: "for a Company as large as TotalEnergies, which operates in 130 countries, it is quite natural to have numerous entities around the world. Their diversity reflects the variety of our operations. We felt it would be useful to give everyone access to a full list of our entities, with their country of incorporation and country of operation, to ensure that there were no misunderstandings due to partial disclosure."
