Our way of doing things is to create partnerships, work together with our partners and involve our employees, to meet the needs of our territories as closely as possible
The sheer extent of the social and environmental challenges related to the fair energy transition to which TotalEnergies wants to contribute, requires everybody to proactively play their role as citizens. We carry out our mission in collaboration with associations, institutions, public authorities and other companies present in the field who practice “creating partnerships”, in keeping with Sustainable Development Goal no.17.
We have chosen to take action at the heart of the territories in which we are present, so that we have an impact exactly where it is needed and work with our stakeholders. Through dialog and in the long term, we intend to kick start tangible and efficient solutions, adapted to local specificities.
The “creating partnerships” approach also includes our employees. The Action! Program created in 2018, gives all our employees in France and worldwide, to give up to three working days a year to work on citizenship initiatives proposed by associations.
In France, the Fondation TotalEnergies therefore supports initiatives such as:
- Les Concerts de Poche, a social, artistic and territorial mission. It is a peripatetic organization that forges links among the population, encourages different generations to interact, and seeks fulfillment for everyone by sharing classical music, jazz and opera with those who do not have ready access to it. In the heart of the countryside and in city districts, the association involves young people, senior citizens, people in socially difficult situations, the disabled, inmates, etc. through concerts and practical music workshops.
- The Écoles de Production, that provide solutions to educational and socio-economic challenges. These schools give young people the opportunity to train in highly sought-after professions in a given territory, through an educational approach of “learning by doing”. Their educational model - the only one of its kind - is based on the close collaboration of several different players: national federations, educational team, an SME/SOHO network, local and regional councils and national services.
