Total's commitment for the years to come is to continue to meet the growing energy needs of the planet cleanly, safely and competitively, while at the same time facing the challenges of climate change. To address this, one of our strategic priorities is our pledge to limit the environmental impact of our operations and our products and services. This means providing products to promote smarter, leaner energy consumption.
Introduced in 2009, the Total Ecosolutions program, is part of this strategy, aiming to develop constantly improving products and services that perform above market standards for environmental and health performance, providing the same level of service for equivalent life cycle.
This program is accompanied by an environmental label that meets the self-declaration principles of ISO 14020/14021 international standards and enables our customers to identify the Group's eco-efficient range of products and services. Internal governance, safeguarded by labelling and steering committees, has been put into place to supervise our rigorous certification process. In addition, our commitment to transparency includes independent third party verification of the labelling repository and the majority of labelled products and services, the findings of which we publish on total.com.
At the end of 2014, the Total Ecosolutions program counted some 70 products and services (including plastics, resins, lubricants, fuels, washing solutions, special fluids and photovoltaic panels) for use in the areas of mobility, agriculture, buildings, packaging, infrastructure and industrial manufacturing. In this video, we invite you to discover the Fuel Economy 15W-30 lubricant for agricultural machinery. Total Ecosolutions certified since 2011, this product for the European market reduces friction responsible for energy losses (and therefore fuel consumption and CO2 emissions) in lubricated parts. Its use allows our farming and wine-producing customers to reduce their fuel consumption by 1.2 percent compared to a conventional 15W-40 oil. This also results in a 1.2 percent reduction in CO2 emissions. Furthermore, the combined use of this oil with Fuel Economy transmission oil can facilitate reductions of up to 6 percent as evidenced when tested with this client.
