Every day, our 100,000 employees place their expertise at the service of an integrated model covering the entire energy chain: they discover, produce, transform and distribute energy on every continent. Thanks to their unwavering dedication, we have become the fourth major in the Oil & Gas industry and a major player in renewable energies. Joining our Group means contributing to game-changing projects that improve the daily lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe: converting biomass into fuel, tackling the challenges of deepwater drilling off the coast of Africa, developing merchant solar power in South America and Asia – trail-blazing projects in which you will play an active role.
Our Group has set itself an ambitious goal: to supply reliable, affordable and clean energy across the globe. Thanks to our new GRP (Gas, Renewables & Power) business we are making the combat against climate change a priority by investing heavily in low-carbon-emission energies such as gas, solar and bioenergy. Our commitment is illustrated by numerous projects, including construction of the Nanao high-performance photovoltaic power plant in Japan and transformation of the French La Mède refinery into a biofuels and solar power production site. To drive innovation alongside promising startups, we have also set up "Usine 4.0", the first industrial digital incubator, to support development of more effective and environment-friendly energy production technologies.
Our Group has a strong business culture, summed up in its founding values: safety as a priority, respecting each other, a pioneering spirit standing together and a performance-minded approach. These values are embedded in our DNA and mark us out from our competitors. For almost a century, they have allowed us to reconcile boldness with a caring attitude, winning new markets with a partnership-based approach, and an integrated model with diversification. Joining us means identifying with these values and committing to implement and promote them in your everyday working life.
