Clean Energy "Fueling" Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022
In July 2018, Sinopec was announced as an official partner of the Beijing Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympic Games. We're proud to serve the Winter Olympics and take it as our political responsibility to support and assist in the games in 2022. We will carefully implement the instructions of General Secretary Xi Jinping, to ensure a clean energy supply for the games and the construction of facilities of the games. We will promote the Olympic spirit with a strong sense of social responsibility, and provide logistical support for the games.
Sinopec Gas Stations for Winter Olympics
Supplying Clean Energy to Enable Green Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022
To ensure "Clean Energy for 2022 Olympics" and support "Green Winter Olympics", Sinopec throws itself into the development of green and clean energy.
Construction of Gas Stations
To support the Winter Olympics, Sinopec has added gas stations in the service stations along the Daxing Airport Expressway, Xingyan Expressway, and Beijing-Chongli Expressway. Sinopec also ensures gasoline and gas to Yanqing Alpine Ski Resort and Zhangjiakou Chongli Ski Resort. To meet transportation needs, Sinopec plans to build gas stations around Beijing and Zhangjiakou venues for the games. The stations would be decorated as required, so as to ensure sufficient energy supply for vehicles during the games. During the pandemic, Sinopec gas stations delivered petroleum products, lubricating oil, etc., to the construction sites of the Winter Olympics facility constructors to guarantee the normal operation of construction machinery vehicles and equipment.
Supply of Green Oil Products
To promote clean energy, Sinopec has launched the Aipao 98 gasoline brand. This is an independently developed gasoline of Sinopec, containing our special brand identification agents so that it looks pale green. Besides improving engine performance, it effectively removes and restrains carbon deposits and protects the engine. Now Aipao 98 gasoline has been sold in Beijing, Hebei, Tianjin, Shandong, Jiangsu, Guangxi and Jilin, and will be promoted across the nation soon. As the only "double-Olympic brand" in the global lubricating oil industry, Sinopec Lubricant Company is actively in developing green products. In close cooperation with the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, with the rich competition cooperation experiences and a natural "sports gene", this company will provide all-round lubricating solutions to the venues, facilities, and vehicles of the Winter Olympics.
Hydrogen Energy Supply
In the development stage, Sinopec's new vision is to transform into a world-leading clean energy and chemical company. We will vigorously expand our clean energy presence, which aligns well with the "Green Winter Olympics" philosophy. In the industrial pattern of “one foundation, two wings, and three new growth points”, Sinopec is focusing on developing strategic emerging businesses like hydrogen energy to potentially support that very philosophy.
The hydrogen supply project for Beijing Winter Olympics of Sinopec Yanshan Petrochemic
Sinopec pays close attention to the hydrogen energy needs of the Winter Olympics to ensure hydrogen supply for HFCVs and hydrogen fueling stations in Beijing and Zhangjiakou during the Winter Olympics. At present, the new hydrogen purification units of Sinopec Yanshan Petrochemical Company have been put into operation. The hydrogen produced meets the hydrogen standards for HFCVs. Meanwhile, hydrogen fueling stations in Beijing and Hebei are under planning, and the hydrogen fueling station construction plan for Zhangjiakou has been approved.
Promoting a Culture of the Winter Olympics Contributing to An Open Winter Olympics
Sinopec mobilizes its employees, upstream partners, middle and downstream industries, consumers and the public to join in, serve, and make contributions to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics and Winter Paralympic Games.
Winter Olympics Themed Gas Stations and Gas Filling Cards
Sinopec is promoting the culture of Winter Olympics, carrying forward the concept of cleanliness, attracting the attention of the public to winter sports, and promoting the development of winter sports industries in China through building Winter Olympics themed gas stations of Sinopec Beijing Oil Products Company in the Huangcun area, issuing 2.022 million Winter Olympics themed gas filling cards (souvenir edition), and running and selling the Winter Olympics franchise retail business and products in Easy Joy convenience stores.

In the Easy Joy convenience store at the station, the tourism, outdoor goods, and specialty zones are added, as well as the Winter Olympics Franchise Product zone.
Launching the Clean Refueling Groups
In August 2020, Sinopec co-released with our partners the Joint Initiative of Rotating Presidents of Beijing Winter Olympic Partner Clubs, to advocate "preparing for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, realizing the dream of green Winter Olympics with wisdom and innovation, and leading the future development with clean energy". In November, Sinopec launched the "Clean Refueling Group" brand activity, and the "clean" initiatives of "offering clean products for the wonderful, extraordinary and outstanding Beijing Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games", "offering clean services for encouraging the millions of people to join in winter sports", and "practicing clean activities for realizing the dreams and creating a better life". We will drive to fulfill "30 'clean' commitments", and organize 3,000 clean refueling group members of 300 clean refueling groups, with 30,000 clean gas stations as the promotional base to achieve the goal of "300 million people participating in winter sports".
Organizing Public Benefit Activities to Carry the Olympic Spirit forward
Sinopec makes use of our rights as a Winter Olympic partner to advance poverty alleviation. By organizing the "Fueling Winter Olympics and Fulfilling the Dream of Winter Sports: Sinopec Action to Light up Hope", we help children in mountainous areas to know, participate and love Winter Olympics themed sports. As of now, recruitment for this activity in Fenghuang County of Hunan, Dongxiang County of Gansu, and Baingoin County of Tibet has been finished. The recruitment part consists of the flag raising ceremony, Winter Olympics lecture, and winter sports experience class. In the Winter Olympics lecture, guests from the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will introduce the Winter Olympics venues and winter sports, Olympic champions will share their experiences of rising to the challenge and winning gold medals, and volunteer representatives of Sinopec will explain the corporate culture and Olympic spirit emphasizing the assumption of responsibility. In the winter sports experiencing class, children will experience dryland curling and other winter sports.
