More climate action against oil giant TotalEnergies

The headquarters of the French oil company is located a little west of Paris. According to a Reuters reporter on site, five activists climbed together on Friday morning a building adjacent to the headquarters to hang a banner criticizing the company's climate strategy.

On the sign was a picture of TotalEnergies CEO Patrick Pouyanne under the heading “Wanted.”

A Greenpeace spokesman told Reuters that Greenpeace opposes Total Energy's continued extraction of oil and gas while the world faces a climate crisis.

Later, climate activists stormed the offices of French asset management company Amundi, photos shared by several activist groups showed. The background is Amundi's stake in TotalEnergies.

Video clips of the incident show dozens of demonstrators, many of them masked, chanting slogans inside the offices.

Banners were hung outside the entrance to the company's offices in the La Défense district of Paris on Thursday evening, and employees are working from home on Friday.

Climate activists have intensified their pressure on the world's leading oil companies in recent years, and public meetings have often become the target of demonstrations. Earlier in the week, protesters interrupted a Shell shareholders meeting chanting “Shell kills.”
