TotalEnergies Foundation encompasses the citizenship initiatives conducted every day worldwide by our sites, our affiliates and our corporate foundation. Through this global program, TotalEnergies aims to contribute to development in our host communities and regions, alongside our partners. With a special focus on young people, our four priority areas of action are road safety, climate, coastal areas, and oceans, youth inclusion and education, and cultural dialogue and heritage. Our social engagement is integral to our ambition to become the responsible energy major.

In the United States, we want to ensure that we are a good partner in our communities. Through financial support and encouraging our employees to volunteer at local non-profit organizations, we are committed to helping the communities where we live and work.


To become the responsible energy major, we need not only to achieve our business objectives but also to spearhead citizenship initiatives in our host communities. To this end, we developed a bold new corporate giving strategy in 2017. By adopting an assertively forward-looking approach, we hope to help empower young people to take control of their future.

The TotalEnergies Foundation program encompasses citizenship initiatives carried out every day by our sites, affiliates and corporate foundation. In keeping with our history, our businesses and our values, it is based on the following four priority areas: Road Safety, Climate, Coastal Areas & Oceans, Youth Inclusion & Education and Cultural Dialogue & Heritage.


In the United States, we support organizations in our community. Our local partnerships include:

We have chosen to take action in the heart of our host regions, where our employees have in-depth knowledge of the real needs. Through dialogue and long-term commitment, our intention is to spur the development of tangible, effective solutions tailored to local realities. 

By combining the talent and energy of all stakeholders, our conviction is that we can give rise to new forms of community engagement. We believe that working together will create a virtuous circle, thereby prompting a profound societal shift. This is why we will carry out our mission alongside nonprofits, institutions, public authorities and other companies present on the ground. Our watchword is to “work with” rather than “for” our host communities.

In this way, we can be part of the solution to social challenges and, one step at a time, alongside our partners, become a powerful advocate for the public interest.
