Worldwide, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions relating to Total-operated oil and gas facilities came to 42 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent in 2018, Trend reports citing the company.
Given that global emissions amount to more than 50 billion metric tons per year, this represents less than 0.1 percent of the total, said the company.
"EIn France, greenhouse gas emissions relating to Total-operated oil and gas facilities came to 10 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent in 2018. Given that the country's emissions amount to 445 million metric tons per year, this represents 2.2 percent of the total," Total said.
In fact, as the company said, its greenhouse gas emissions worldwide represent less than 10 percent of emissions from France as a whole.
"Furthermore, Total aims to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent between 2015 and 2025, after having already achieved a 25 percent reduction since 2010," said the company.
