Engaging the Palma Civil Society Platform
Engagement with civil society, especially civil society organisations in the Project Area of Impact, adds a valuable dimension to the Project’s overall stakeholder engagement program.
TOTAL E&P Mozambique Area 1 (TEPMA1) has been recognized for its commitment to transparency and the disclosure of information relating to its operations in Mozambique.
The award was made by the Center for Public Integrity (CIP) during the Extractive Industries Transparency Index 2019 – 2020 Seminar comprising participants from Government institutions, mining and oil and gas companies, civil society organizations and development partners in the country.
This is the first event of its nature organized by this civil society organization and brings an analysis of the information made available on websites of 12 companies in the Mozambican extractive sector in the components of:
1) fiscal; 2) corporate and social governance; and 3) environmental management.
With this index, CIP intends that the availability of information from mining and oil and gas companies in Mozambique will be made available to the society in a regular, meaningful and accessible manner.
Total was represented on this event by Milva Mafuca, E&S Lenders Interface coordinator/CSO Coordinator.
One of Total’s most relevant achievements highlighted by CIP was the fact that Total presents its website in both Portuguese and English, which allows the information to be available for a broad range of stakeholders.
CIP also recognized Total’s commitment to frequent engagements with a wide range of interested parties.
