- French energy giant Total has changed its name to TotalEnergies.
- In tandem with this name change, TotalEnergies is adopting a new logo.
“Energy is life. We all need it and it’s a source of progress. So today, to contribute to the sustainable development of the planet facing the climate challenge, we are moving forward, together, towards new energies. Energy is reinventing itself, and this energy journey is ours. Our ambition is to be a world-class player in the energy transition. That is why Total is transforming and becoming TotalEnergies,” declared Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TotalEnergies.
This new name and new visual identity embody the course TotalEnergies has resolutely charted for itself: “that of a broad energy company committed to producing and providing energies that are ever more affordable, reliable and clean” the company said in a press statement.
The company won 99-percent support for a motion to change its name to TotalEnergies as the company wants to show that it is diversifying into renewable energies, which will account for 20 percent of investments this year.
The newly renamed company has also pledged to be net-zero emissions in its global businesses by 2050.
