Total contributes to the US Bipartisan Climate Roadmap released by the Climate Leadership Council



The Climate Leadership Council – a broad coalition of leading companies, environmental NGOs and thought leaders from across the political spectrum – released its Bipartisan Climate Roadmap today. The Roadmap is the result of over two years of dialogue among the Founding Members of the Climate Leadership Council.

“At Total, we actively advocate for carbon pricing, an essential tool to support the energy transition. But carbon must be priced fairly since consumers may lack the means to change their behavior and view a carbon price as unfair. For this reason, we support the proposal of the Climate Leadership Council to establish a carbon dividend, which creates an incentive for consumers while redistributing resources to those with the lowest incomes.” – Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of Total.
