JX Nippon Oil & Energy (President: Tsutomu Sugimori) is pleased to announce that it has concluded today an agreement with the Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, making the company a Tokyo 2020 Gold Partner in the “Oil, Gas & Electricity supply services” category.
Tokyo 2020’s Marketing Programme is divided into three separate categories, with Gold Partners constituting the highest tier. As a Gold Partner, JX Nippon Oil & Energy will contribute to the success of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games and the further development of the Japan’s national Olympic and Paralympic teams.
JX Nippon Oil & Energy will establish an internal “Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games Promotion Committee”, with the mission of supporting event management operations and promoting event-related activities over the next six years.
As an integrated energy corporation, JX Nippon Oil & Energy refines petroleum products (gasoline, kerosene, lubricants, etc.), imports natural gas and coal, supplies electricity, and retails them under the brand name “ENEOS” to meet customers’ energy needs.
By leveraging the experience and expertise the company has acquired through business activities that span a broad spectrum, JX Nippon Oil & Energy is committed to providing assistance in achieving successful Games’ operations.
The company started supplying hydrogen to fuel cell vehicles in December 2014 and expects the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games to be the catalyst for the widespread use of hydrogen energy. As a major supplier of this source of energy, JX Nippon Oil & Energy hopes to contribute to the creation of a new society.
Last June, JX Nippon Oil & Energy also signed on as an official sponsor of the Japanese Women’s national Basketball team.
Under the slogan “Coexistence with society”, JX Nippon Oil & Energy is committed to actively promoting sports and culture as well as development of the next generation.
