In 2014, environmental reporting covered all activities, sites and industrial assets in which TOTAL, directly or through one of its companies, is the operator (i.e. either operates or contractually manages the operations) as of December 31, 2014. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions “based on the Group’s equity interest” are the only data which are published for the “equity interest” scope. This scope, which is different from the “operated domain” mentioned above, includes all the assets in which TOTAL has a financial interest with rights over all or part of the production (financial interest without operational responsibility nor rights on all or part of the production do not lead to the incorporation of GHG emissions).
Safety reporting covers all TOTAL employees, employees of contractors working at Group-operated sites and employees of transport companies under long-term contracts. Each site submits its safety reporting to the relevant business unit. The data is then consolidated at the business level and every month at the Group level. In 2014, the Group safety reporting scope covered 539 million hours worked, equivalent to approximately 300,000 people.
Reporting on occupational illnesses covers only the Group’s personnel and illnesses reported according to the regulations applicable in the country of operation of each entity. Each site sends its reporting on occupational illnesses to the operational entity it reports to. Statistics are consolidated at business segment level and reported to the Group once a year.
Social reporting is based on two resources – the Global Workforce Analysis and the Worldwide Human Resources Survey.
The Global Workforce Analysis is conducted twice a year, on June 30 and December 31, in all fully consolidated companies at least 50% owned and consolidated by the global integration method. The survey mainly covers worldwide workforces, hiring under permanent and fixed-term contracts (non-French equivalents of contrats à durée déterminée ou indéterminée) as well as employee turnover. This survey produces a breakdown of the workforce by gender, professional category (managers and other employees), age and nationality.
The Worldwide Human Resources Survey is an annual survey which comprises approximately 100 indicators in addition to those used in the Global Workforce Analysis. The indicators are selected in cooperation with the business segments and cover major components of the Group Human Resources policy, such as mobility, career management, training, employee dialogue, Code of Conduct application, health, compensation, retirement benefits and insurance. The survey covers a representative sample of the consolidated scope. The data published in this Registration Document are extracted from the most recent survey, carried out in December 2014 and January 2015; 147 companies, operating in fifty-nine countries, representing 91% of the consolidated Group workforce (90,949 employees) replied to the survey. Both surveys are conducted using the same information system introduced at TOTAL at the end of 2003, and undergo similar internal control and validation processes.
For the scopes defined above, safety indicators and social data are fully consolidated. Environmental indicators consolidate 100% of the emissions of Group operated sites for the “operated” indicators. GHG emissions are also published on an equity interest basis, i.e. by consolidating the Group share of the emissions of all assets in which the Group has a financial interest or rights to production.
Changes in scope
For social and environmental indicators, the indicators are calculated on the basis of the perimeter of the Group as of December 31, 2014. For safety indicators, acquisitions are taken into account as soon as possible and at the latest on January 1 of the following year, and divestments are taken into account at the end of the quarter preceding their effective date of implementation. Restatement of previous years published data, unless there is a specific statement, is now limited to changes of methodology.
