About Louvre Abu Dhabi
Created by an exceptional agreement between the governments of Abu Dhabi and France, Louvre Abu Dhabi was designed by Jean Nouvel and opened on Saadiyat Island in November 2017. The museum is inspired by traditional Islamic architecture and its monumental dome creates a rain of light effect and a unique social space that brings people together.

Louvre Abu Dhabi celebrates the universal creativity of mankind and invites audiences to see humanity in a new light. Through its innovative curatorial approach, the museum focuses on building understanding across cultures: through stories of human creativity that transcend civilisations, geographies and times.

The museum’s growing collection is unparalleled in the region and spans thousands of years of human history, including prehistoric tools, artefacts, religious texts, iconic paintings and contemporary artworks. The permanent collection is supplemented by rotating loans from 13 French partner institutions, regional and international museums.

Louvre Abu Dhabi is a testing ground for new ideas in a globalised world and champions new generations of cultural leaders. Its international exhibitions, programming and Children’s Museum are inclusive platforms that connect communities and offer enjoyment for all.

“Headquartered in France and an energy partner to the Middle East, ENGIE is delighted to be a corporate member of Louvre Abu Dhabi, which features important artworks and artefacts spanning the entirety of human history around the world,” said Frederic Claux, Thermal and Supply Managing Director for Asia, Middle East and Africa at ENGIE. “With this in mind, Louvre Abu Dhabi provides the perfect setting to discuss the regional path to net zero ahead of COP28, which will be hosted in the UAE. Climate change is now one of humanity’s most pressing concerns. Still, with the commitment, skills and technical capabilities of government and business leaders in the Middle East, the region can lead global decarbonization efforts,” Claux added.

Commenting on this partnership, Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi said: “As a mindful museum open to the sea and connected to its natural environment, Louvre Abu Dhabi is committed to raising awareness on sustainability. Our partnership with ENGIE affirms our commitment to supporting innovative and ground-breaking initiatives. ENGIE has constantly demonstrated its involvement and dedication to the region and, by working together, we believe that we can create a more sustainable future for Abu Dhabi and the wider community.”

With ambitions to achieve net zero by 2045, ENGIE’s strategic objectives are closely aligned with the net zero goals of regional governments. The company is the Middle East’s energy partner and works closely with its stakeholders to support its decarbonization efforts.
