Global Compact

The United Nations created the Global Compact in 2000 following a call by its Secretary-General urging businesses to play an active role in the globalization process.

It is grounded on a universal and voluntary framework of “Ten Principles” related to human rights, labour, the environment and the fight against corruption.

Our commitment

The Company upholds the Global Compact since 2002. It reiterates each year its commitment to the Global Compact’s Ten Principles [ancre vers les 10 principles plus bas]. This commitment is explicitly stated in the Company’s Code of conduct.

TotalEnergies' yearly Communication on Progress is made at the GC-Advanced level since 2012. In 2022, TotalEnergies participated in the “Early Adopter Programme” to publish its new Communication on Progress in accordance with the Global Compact questionnaire.

The Company is a member of the Global Compact France, and the teams actively contribute to the Human rights Club and the GC Advanced Club of the French network.

In 2018 and based on the new criteria set by the Global Compact, TotalEnergies was among the companies recognised as LEAD for its sustainability practices. TotalEnergies’ LEAD status was confirmed in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
