Official visit of the French President
On the occasion of the official visit of the French President Emmanuel Macron to Greece, the ENGIE Foundation has signed an agreement with the Greek National Opera to sponsor the access of opera productions to underprivileged children.
The signature of the agreement took place in the presence of Gérard Mestrallet, Chairman of the ENGIE Foundation and President of ENGIE, Mr. Athanasios Theodoropoulos, President of the Greek National Opera, Mr. George Daniolos, CEO of ENGIE Hellas and Heron, and Mr. George Kouvaris, President of Heron.
Access to culture for all and support to the underprivileged have always been a priority for the ENGIE Foundation that is based on nearly 20 years of action and demonstrates the social, civic and environmental commitment of the ENGIE Group and its employees. In order to make the right to health, education and culture a reality, the Foundation supports 800 projects of solidarity associations in 25 countries, affecting nearly one million children.
ENGIE has two main activities in Greece: energy services, technical maintenance and facility management services through its subsidiary ENGIE Hellas; power generation (600 MW capacity) and electricity and gas supply through Heron.
In January 2017, ENGIE, through ENGIE Hellas, won its largest contract for total facility management services in Greece: a five-year agreement to provide technical maintenance, energy services, security services, cleaning and waste management and landscaping services for the new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) in Athens, where the Greek National Opera is located.
