Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka last night congratulated Total Energies’ dedication to sustainability and its collaboration with the Fiji Government in shaping a resilient energy future.
While delivering his official remarks at the company’s 100 years celebrations at Suva’s Grand Pacific Hotel, PM Rabuka also commended Total Energies for its commitment to supporting Fiji’s net-zero ambitions by 2050 and welcomed its partnership in achieving this goal.
“Total Energies has constantly evolved and earned a reputation for its innovative spirit, including the decision in 2006 to acquire Shell in Fiji,” he said.
“I thank Total for agreeing to be a long-term energy partner with the Fijian Government. Its global climate ambition aligns with the Fijian government’s goal of becoming net-zero by 2050.
“With its strong position in the market, Total Energies is exploring creative multi-energy solutions with its partners and stakeholders to achieve this.”
Speaking on the government’s energy policy, Prime Minister Rabuka emphasized the importance of the 2023-2030 National Energy Policy in laying the groundwork for a sustainable, inclusive, and reliable energy sector by the end of the decade.
The policy aims to diversify energy sources, promote energy independence, and bolster renewable energy initiatives while safeguarding Fiji’s resources for the future.
PM Rabuka also revealed that the government will review the outdated Petroleum Act to meet modern-day challenges in the petroleum sector.
He congratulated Total Energies on its centenary and expressed confidence in its continued success in Fiji.
Since the establishment of Total Energies in Fiji in 2006, the Total network now has 34 stations with modern facilities, services, and products throughout the country.
