Corporate Social Responsibility
As a leader in the downstream oil and gas industry, we are fully committed to creating real value for all stakeholders in fulfillment of our socio-economic and environmental obligations via:
The Young Dealers Scheme
This was created as a platform for developing capacities of young Nigerians who prove to be honest, loyal, and diligent in the discharge of their duties. We support and empower them to grow through the ranks from being TOTAL service station attendants to becoming dealers managing their own assigned stations. This scheme has become a symbol of hope to many and represents the bedrock of our success in the Nigerian downstream industry and has since its inception in 1961 produced a good number of young dealers.
The Truck Drivers Training School and Inspection Centre established in March 28, 2011, was borne out of the need to change the nomadic method of drivers’ training to a fully equipped facilities school that enhances the quality of knowledge for drivers. This has impacted hugely on the improvement of transportation safety and reduced truck accidents on Nigerian roads, more so, as the country depends highly on road transportation for the distribution of petroleum products.
TOTAL signed the Diversity Charter in 2004 to prevent all forms of employee discrimination while promoting equal opportunity in employment, hiring more women managers, and recruiting and retaining the disabled. Read More
