This investigation was opened by the economic and financial unit of the Nanterre public prosecutor’s office following a criminal complaint, in October 2020, from several environmental defense associations.

New complaint

In April 2022, this group of associations (Wild Legal, Sea Sheperd France and Darwin Climax Coalitions) filed a new complaint, accusing TotalEnergies “other practices” originally according to them “of an ecocide”explained the public ministry.
