Ethical Behaviour To prevent risks of corruption, TOTAL has implemented a robust, regularly updated anti-corruption compliance program that has been rolled out throughout the Group. The aim of this program is to promote a culture of compliance and transparency, which is key in ensuring the sustainability of the Group’s activities. Failure to comply with such legislation such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the French law on transparency, the fight against corruption and the modernization of the economy, is likely to expose the Group to a high criminal, financial and reputation risk, as well as the enforcement of measures such as the review and reinforcement of the compliance Anti-corruption program under the supervision of an independent third party. 1.

Poster campaigns communicating the key messages in the to combat corruption. risk areas are held on a regular basis; a campaign on the “Speak-Up” theme, among other things, was held before the Business Ethics Day. An initial anti-corruption e-learning course was rolled out in 2011 and a more in-depth e-learning module in 2015. This module is accessible to all employees and mandatory for the targeted personal (almost 43,000 employees) and new hires. At year-end 2020, season one of the anti-corruption e-learning course had been followed by approximately 41,000 people and season two by approximately 39,000 people.

In addition, TOTAL takes actions in order to develop a speak-up culture and asks its employees to report any situations that they consider to be contrary to the Code of Conduct. This culture is encouraged by regular communication and a rule was adopted in late 2020 to formalize the procedure for collecting integrity alerts (corruption, fraud and influence peddling); it reminds the various existing alert channels: employees, depending on the option they feel is most appropriate, can contact any manager, human resources, the Compliance Officers or Ethics Officers, or the Group Ethics Committee. Both employees and third parties can refer to this Committee by writing to ethics@total.com. The Group will not tolerate any retaliation measures or discrimination toward anyone submitting a report in good faith and undertakes to respect confidentiality.

    Chapter 11 / Additional reporting information World Economic Forum (WEF/IBC) Core ESG metrics Sub-items, proposed metrics and disclosures Reported TOTAL’s disclosures (2020) PEOPLE Dignity and Equality Through its activities, diversity is integral to the Group’s identity and key to its success. The Group has long been committed to promoting equal opportunity and diversity, and strives to promote an environment that allows every employee to express and develop his or her potential. The diversity of its employees and management is crucial to the Group’s competitiveness, appeal, acceptability and capacity for innovation. TOTAL aims to develop its employees’ skills and careers while prohibiting any discrimination related to origin, gender, sexual orientation or identity, disability, age or affiliation with a political, labor or religious organization, or membership in a minority group. This policy is supported at the highest levels and promoted by the Diversity Council, which is chaired by a member Diversity and inclusion of the Group’s Executive Committee. The Diversity Council is also charged with making specific recommendations Percentage of employees per employee Yes on issues identified each year by the Executive Committee. category, by age group, gender and other indicators of diversity (e.g. ethnicity). (Source: 2020 URD, §5.3.3.1) N.B. Tables of employees available in §5.3.1.1: – Breakdown by employment contact – Breakdown by age bracket – Total number of managers Breakdown by gender available in §5.3.1.1: – Among all employees – Among employees with permanent contacts (CDI). The Group’s compensation policy applies to all companies in which TOTAL SE holds the majority of voting rights. That policy has several aims: to ensure external competitiveness and internal fairness, reinforce the link to individual performance, increase employee share ownership and implement the Group’s corporate social responsibility commitments. A large majority of employees are covered by laws that guarantee a minimum wage, and, whenever that is not the case, the Group’s policy ensures that compensation is above the local minimum wage. Regular benchmarking is used to assess compensation based on the external market and the entity’s competitive environment. Each entity’s positioning relative to its reference market is assessed by the human resources division within each business segment, which monitors evolutions in payroll, turnover and consistency with the market. Fair treatment is ensured within the Group through the widespread use of weighting for management positions (JL ≥ 10)(1) via the Hay method, which is used to assign a salary range to each job level. Performance reviews for Group employees, covering actual versus targeted results, skills assessment and overall job performance, are conducted during an annual individual review and formally issued in accordance with the same principles and guidelines across the entire organization. The compensation structure for the Group’s employees is based on the following components, depending on the country: – a base salary, which is subject to individual and/or general salary-raise campaigns each year. The merit-based Pay equality salary-raise campaigns are intended to compensate employees’ individual performance according to the Ratio of the basic salary and remuneration targets set during the annual individual review, including at least one HSE (Health, Safety, Environment) target; for each employee category by significant Partially and locations of operation for priority areas of – an individual variable compensation starting at a certain level of responsibility. This is intended to equality: women to men, minor to major ethnic compensate individual performance (quantitative and qualitative attainment of previously set targets), managerial groups, and other relevant equality areas. practices, if applicable, and the employee’s contribution to collective performance evaluated on the basis of HSE targets set for each business segment, which represents up to 10% of the variable portion. In 2020, 87.4% of the Group’s entities (WHRS scope) included HSE criteria in the variable compensation. (Source: 2020 URD, §5.3.1.2) With regard to compensation, TOTAL has been adopting specific measures to prevent and compensate for discriminatory wage differentials since 2010. Regular audits are conducted during salary-raise campaigns to ensure equal pay among men and women holding positions with the same level of responsibility. Since 2019, consistent with the French Act of September 5, 2018, on the freedom to choose one’s professional future, the Group has published an index in France for its three units of economic and employee interest (UESs) on wage differentials and the steps taken to eliminate them. That index, based on a score of 100, reflects five indicators: wage differentials, pay raise differentials excluding promotions, promotion rate differentials, percentage of female employees who received a pay raise in the year they returned from maternity leave, number of employees of the underrepresented gender among the ten employees who received the highest compensation. (Source: 2020 URD, §5.3.3.1) N.B.

Number of hours worked: 389 million (Source: 2020 URD, §5.4.2) 2. Explanations: The Group has a policy for preventing occupational accidents that applies to all employees of Group subsidiaries and employees of contractors working on a site operated by one of these subsidiaries. The safety results are monitored with the same attention for all. This policy is described in the One MAESTRO reference framework. The indicators monitored by the Group include work-related accidents whether they occur at workplace, during transportation within the framework of long-term contracts, or during an industrial accident. In addition to its aim of zero fatalities in the exercise of its activities, TOTAL has set itself the target of continuously reducing the TRIR indicator and, for 2020, of keeping it below 0.80 for all personnel of the Group and its contractors. In terms of medical monitoring, the referential framework requires that each Group entity offers all employees a medical checkup at least every two years and sets out a formal medical monitoring procedure taking into account the requirements under local law (frequency, type of examination, etc.) and the level of exposure of its personnel to the various risks. Medical monitoring of employees is conducted at a health department, which may be internal (occupational health departments in France, clinics in five countries in Africa) or external.

The theme for 2020 was the COVID-19 pandemic and in particular the measures taken by the Group while managing the crisis. On a broader level, TOTAL also supports the promotion of individual and collective health programs in the countries where it operates, including vaccination campaigns and screening programs for certain diseases (AIDS, cancer, malaria, etc.) for employees, their families and local communities. It also develops employee benefit programs (refer to point 5.3.1.2 in this chapter), and regularly takes action to raise awareness of lifestyle risks (anti- smoking and anti-drinking campaigns, etc.). Every year, in order to share information on progress in the area of Industrial Hygiene, TOTAL holds a technical day of discussions on different subjects with the relevant business segments. In 2020, this event did not take place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. (Source: 2020 URD, §5.4.4) The Group provides pension and employee benefit programs (health and death) that meet the needs of the subsidiaries as well as the Group’s standards, designed to ensure that each employee can: – in case of illness, receive coverage that is at least equal to the median amount for the national industrial market; – participate in a savings or supplementary retirement plan; – arrange for the protection of family members in the event of the employee’s death, via insurance that provides for the payment of a benefit recommended to equal two years’ gross salary. These programs, which are regularly reviewed and, if necessary, adjusted, are administered by the subsidiaries and supplement any programs provided under local law. (Source: 2020 URD, §5.3.1.2) N.B.

    Chapter 11 / Additional reporting information World Economic Forum (WEF/IBC) Core ESG metrics Sub-items, proposed metrics and disclosures Reported TOTAL’s disclosures (2020) Innovation in better products and services 1.5.1 R&D at the heart of our strategy Based on the various scenarios studied by TOTAL, the goal of achieving carbon neutrality (net zero emissions) by 2050 entails more than large-scale deployment of proven technologies such as photovoltaic solar power, wind power and biofuels. It also requires technological game-changers and the development of completely new industrial value chains, such as hydrogen, synthetic fuels, and carbon capture and storage. The Group’s transformation from an oil and gas company into a broad energy group calls for agile R&D that is firmly committed to innovation. At the heart of the Group’s strategy, R&D is focusing on its teams and partners who specialize in the electricity and renewables value chain, and technology for shrinking our environmental footprint. The Group’s research projects are defined by the principles that underpin its strategy and its goal of carbon neutrality: acting on emissions, acting on products and acting on demand. These R&D programs are organized around on five priorities: – Safety and the environment, including satellite-based emissions monitoring and research into plastics and product recycling. – A low-carbon energy mix, including optimization of the natural gas (and particularly LNG) value chain; renewables and power storage solutions (hydrogen, etc.); hybrid systems; gains in energy efficiency; carbon capture, utilization and storage; and bioproducts. – Operational efficiency, including programs aimed at combining productivity gains, lower operating costs and carbon emissions reductions through the use of digital technology and electrification. – New products, including ecodesign, biosourcing and the development of products with special properties, such as high-performance fluids for electric motors. – Digital technology, which is embedded in every program, including advanced research into high-performance Total R&D expenses computing technology and the use of artificial intelligence for industrial applications.

These research programs may be led by a business segment on behalf of its business lines or those of other segments; or, when they involve topics with broad relevance, they may be coordinated at Group level in order to establish synergies, capitalize on expertise and pool knowledge and infrastructure. In addition to the Group’s five R&D priorities, some subsidiaries may conduct R&D centered on their own businesses. At Hutchinson, for example, research activities focus on three main issues connected with mobility of the future: weight reduction and energy efficiency, electrification, and smart objects. R&D is also investigating forward-looking topics with the aim of evaluating the potential of new technology for the Group’s businesses, such as nanotechnologies, robotics, hydrogen and new mobility solutions. With an R&D workforce of more than 4,000 employees, the Group invested $895 million in R&D in 2020 (versus $968 million in 2019 and $986 million in 2018). The Group’s investment for the future – including developments in the field of digital technology and carbon capture and storage industrial projects, as well as investments led by Total Carbon Neutrality Ventures (TOTAL’s venture capital fund, which focuses solely on carbon neutrality businesses and expects to invest a total of $400 million dollars by 2023) – has risen to more than $1.1 billion. The Group carries out its R&D projects with an open innovation approach, drawing on its talent pool, research infrastructure, pilot sites and R&D centers worldwide, as well as start-ups and top-ranked academic partners. The Group operates 12 R&D centers and six techcenters across the globe, and has signed roughly 1,000 agreements with its partners. In addition, the Group implements an active intellectual property policy to protect its innovations, maximize their use and differentiate its technology. In 2020, the Group filed more than 200 patent applications.
