How financial markets react to Total’s strategy of becoming a responsible energy major?

No 2020-30, EconomiX Working Papers from University of Paris Nanterre, EconomiX

Abstract: This paper investigates the market reaction to the upstream oil and gas and climate strategy of Total SA. It aims at (i) analyzing whether the market welcomes Total's climate commitment and (ii) comparing investors' reaction to both categories of announcements. By using an event study, our results highlight that the market reacts negatively to both Total's upstream oil and gas and climate strategy. However, the market reacts more negatively to its climate strategy meaning that investors may consider that Total has to do better in terms of climate commitment to mitigate the risk of climate change.
