Total's other commitment to the environment
In South Africa, Total is the long-standing official partner of Arbor Week, held each year by the National Department of Agriculture. This national one-week awareness-raising program highlights the importance of trees for the planet through various activities, including reforestation with a focus on fruit trees and local species at risk of extinction. More than 56,000 trees were planted in 2014. In Nigeria, Total carried out the Ofon 2 project to recover flared gas and reduce flaring by an average of 0.9 million m³/day beginning in 2015.
