Reducing the environmental impact of our activities, and striving for a safer world today and for future generations, are our core principles. With our R&D expertise, our deep understanding of industry and lubricants, and our constant desire to innovate, we have the means to bring about a more sustainable future and we are committed to doing so.

Innovation for the environment

Driven by the goal of having a positive impact on the environment, we invest heavily in research and development. Every lubricant we develop has the potential to reduce energy usage and waste. Wherever possible, we strive to make biodegradable lubricants available, reducing the post-use environmental impact of our products.

At the Research & Technology Centre in Gonfreville, our Technical Centre in Mumbai and the Research Centre in Solaize, TotalEnergies scientists and technicians lead the world in the design and development of safer, better industrial lubricants. Our focus is on the future, constantly anticipating the needs of our customers and improving environmental and performance standards as new industrial technologies are developed.

We work closely with our customers and with leaders in a range of industries around the world with the aim of achieving more efficient and environmentally friendly solutions for future generations.


We are continually investing in:

  • Skilled teams across scientific disciplines including chemistry, mathematics and engineering.
  • The latest testing tools.
  • Sophisticated analytical facilities down to the molecular level.
  • Support teams in computing, documentation, quality and safety.

Sustainability for the future

As a lubricant manufacturer, we feel it’s our responsibility to reduce the environmental impact of everything we do. That includes our products while in use and after they’ve been removed from equipment. We are committed to:

Improving energy efficiency

Whenever one of our lubricants is used, it has the potential to improve machine performance and productivity.

In the energy sector, we supply lubricants to green energy producers such as wind farms, where more efficient lubricants translate into cleaner power generation. Where we supply lubricants to gas and oil-powered producers, better performance leads to more fuel-efficient output. There are hundreds of ways in which TotalEnergies lubricants contribute to more energy efficient industries.


Reducing waste and pollution

By protecting the parts in industrial machinery, TotalEnergies lubricants help the equipment to last longer, which means less waste equipment. By developing longer lasting lubricants, we are ensuring that less lubricant waste enters the environment.

Furthermore, TotalEnergies operates a Waste Management service, which promises to remove your used lubricants and filters and safely dispose of it within Environment Agency guidelines.




TotalEnergies is at the forefront of developing biolubricants – biodegradable and made from sustainably produced ingredients – for an increasing range of industrial applications. It’s another example of how our innovation is leading to safer, more environmentally friendly solutions for industry.






Quality and safety

Meeting industry standards for quality, safety, and environmental protection is a top priority for us. We comply with European REACH regulations for chemical handling and processing to safeguard human health and the environment.

Our ISO certifications, Including ISO 14001: 2015, ISO45001:2018, ISO 9001: 2015, and also IATF 16949:2016, reflect our commitment to safety, occupational health and hygiene, environmental protection and quality.

We collaborate with relevant organisations and associations to ensure our products meet the latest standards. Our Nevastane range of food industry lubricants has NSF H1 and ISO 21469 certification, is Kosher, and contains no animal-origin products, allergens, or GMO ingredients. At Total Lubricants, we take our responsibilities seriously and strive to exceed industry standards every day.
