Total follows measures for the Paris Agreement

Last Friday (8), Total President Patrick Pouyanné stressed the company’s need to be engaged in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement. The organization then announced that it will search its participation in 30 industrial associations to verify that its postures are aligned with climate issues.

Following these parameters, Total will leave the association American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) and will retain its affiliation to three Associations in North America: the American Chemistry Council, American Petroleum Institute and Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. The proposal of the company will be to seek internal changes in its positions.

The Paris Agreement was signed in December 2015 and set targets for countries to keep global warming below 2°C, seeking to limit it to 1.5°C. Last Monday (4), the United States notified the United Nations (UN) of its withdrawal from the agreement. President Donald Trump said he would negotiate a return in “fairer terms to the U.S.”
