Total Kenya, one of the biggest suppliers of Petroleum and Gas products in East Africa, has announced plans to change its name from Total Kenya Plc to TotalEnergies Marketing Kenya Plc.
The rebranding follows a similar exercise by its parent organization based in France. French oil giant, TotalEnergies, owns 92% of Total Kenya through its subsidiary Total Outre Mer.
TotalEnergies hopes to remodel itself as a clean energy company with the rebrand, and increased investments in wind and solar power. According to the Oil&Gas news website, “Total plans to devote more than 20 per cent of its investment budget to renewable energy sources as well as electricity”.
In its latest annual report, Total Kenya highlighted its commitment to get to Net Zero
emissions by 2050.
“The Company is geared towards ensuring clean and accessible energy. This is being achieved through the distribution and sale of affordable solar lanterns in all its service
stations countrywide,” Total said in its annual report. The energy firm added that it aims to deliver quality and safe Liquified Petroleum Gas to its customers at no additional cost.
Total Kenya’s rebrand is subject to regulatory approval according to a statement issued by the company.
