Our commitments

TotalEnergies is committed to developing our great nation and was one of the first oil companies to introduce service stations in previously disadvantaged areas.  Considered to be a pioneer within the local employment industry, TotalEnergies is recognised for its substantial number of firsts when it comes to progressive transformation. Notably, it was the first multinational oil Company in South Africa to appoint a female executive. During the sixties, it was also the first oil company to introduce its brand into what was then known as predominantly black townships, also taking the initiative to appoint black service station owners.

Our people

Today, the Company continues to make great progress in the transformation arena as part of its effort to contribute towards an adaptive economy which is characterised by growth, employment and equity. In pursuit of this goal, TotalEnergies Marketing South Africa (PTY) Ltd became the first oil company to achieve the fully unencumbered 25% shares for its BEE shareholders, TOSACO, in 2010. Consequently, the Company is now owned 49.9% by South African shareholders and 50.1% by the TotalEnergies company in France.
