Elias Kassis, President TotalEnergies EP and TotalEnergies Country Chair in the UAE visited the UAE Pavilion at EXPO 2020. It was a courtesy visit along with H.E. Ahmed Taleb Al Shamsi, CEO, Emirates Foundation.

 Emirates Foundation, the national organization that facilitates public-private funded initiatives to unite social responsibility in the interest of community resilience across the UAE, is providing close to 2,000 volunteers taking part in the success story of the largest global event ever to be held in the region, EXPO 2020 Dubai. This comes as part of its commitment to providing all necessary support to the organizers, participating entities and the pavilions of countries participating in the event while giving local and international individuals of all nationalities the valuable opportunity to volunteer to take part in a regional “first” through the platform.

Emirates Foundation was established in April 2005 under the guidance of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, and the meticulous direction of his brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

TotalEnergies is a Distinguished Connect Partner of Emirates Foundation since 2006 and TotalEnergies CEO, Patrick POUYANNE is a member of Emirates Foundation Board of Trustees. Since 2012, TotalEnergies is a main supporter of "Think Science" Fair which plays a key role in empowering youth to take advantage of the next technological revolution.

 Taking opportunity of this visit, he also toured the KSA and UN pavilions at the EXPO and extended our courtesy greetings.
