Supporting culture

In its commitment to culture and avant-garde art, Iberdrola also supports several major events and makes significant artistic donations that also respect the environment and promote sustainability.

During the week prior to the 2018 General Shareholders' Meeting — from 5th to 13th April —, the Spanish artist Eugenio Ampudia transformed the Iberdrola Tower into a rainstick (pau de chuva). This was an artistic presentation with a very powerful technological and ecological character combining climate data of Bilbao and Brasilia.

The work of art reflected pulses of light marked by a combination of temperature, atmospheric pressure, environmental humidity and wind strength data of the two cities.

Another example was the donation by the company of the painting Por España y por el Rey, Gálvez en Pensacola to the Spanish Military Culture and History Institute. This work will be on permanent display at the Army Museum in the room dedicated to General Bernardo de Gálvez in the Alcázar de Toledo.

Furthermore, the company was a special sponsor of San Sebastián 2016, European Capital of Culture, as a further testament to its belief in the possibility of a better world through knowledge and multicultural dialogue, and the care and maintenance of our cultural richness and diversity. By supporting this event, the company also aimed to highlight the interaction between culture, the environment and sustainability.

Likewise, Iberdrola has signed an agreement with The Fundación pro-RAE to create a digital version of the forthcoming edition of the Dictionary of the Spanish language, on the celebration of the IV Centenary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes in 2016.
