Paris, November 3, 2022 – In a report entitled "TotalEnergies' Carbon Footprint Doesn't Add Up" published by Greenpeace on Thursday, November 3, 2022, Greenpeace affirms, among other things, that TotalEnergies' Scope 1 emissions based on equity share allegedly exceeded 160 million tons of CO2e in 2019, whereas the Scope 1 emissions based on equity share reported by TotalEnergies for 2019 actually amounted to 55 million tons of CO2e.

The figure of 160 million tons of CO2e provided by Greenpeace for TotalEnergies' 2019 Scope 1 emissions based on equity share is fanciful and false. Greenpeace's spreading of misleading information on this subject is serious in that it concerns the quality and reliability of TotalEnergies’ disclosures concerning its direct greenhouse gas emissions over which it has control.

Consequently, TotalEnergies has decided to initiate legal proceedings to repair the damage caused by the spreading of this misleading information by Greenpeace.
