Total is acutely aware of the need for environmental protection and sustainable development and has developed a complete range of lubricants primarily intended for activities that can present direct risks to the environment if the product leaks or is accidentally spilled.
Bio-lubricants are preferably used in all application that may present risks for the environment.

The use of bio-lubricants is particularly relevant to certain environments in which environmental protection is a constant concern. This is particularly true of aquatic, mountain, agricultural and forest environments.
