Tokyo, 12 July 2021 – The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020)
today welcomed Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) as a Tokyo 2020 Official Contributor. This
programme differs from the Tokyo 2020 Sponsorship Programme, as it is intended to recognise Non-Profit
Organisations (including certain special cases) that are contributing to the delivery of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Official Contributors can refer to their involvement through the use of designations that explain their contribution
within the territory of Japan. With the cooperation of each Official Contributor, Tokyo 2020 is striving to achieve
the successful delivery of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
In its capacity as an Official Contributor, TEPCO will provide support in four main areas: Reinforcement of contact
and recovery structure regarding the electric power supply equipment during the operation period of the Tokyo
2020 Games, emergency response for failure of electric power supply equipment to the venues, etc., support
for construction and operation of electrical equipment of the venues, etc., and reinforcement of inspection of
electric power supply equipment to the venues, etc. during the operation period of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
Tokyo 2020 President HASHIMOTO Seiko welcomed the announcement, commenting, "Facing the challenge of
the first ever postponement of the Games in Olympic and Paralympic history, we are delighted to welcome TEPCO
as an Official Contributor. We are very encouraged and grateful to TEPCO for their full support in ensuring the
stable operation of power supply facilities at Games venues, including any emergency response required. We
will continue to make steady preparations for a safe and secure Games together with TEPCO and our other
Official Contributors and partners."
Commented TEPCO Representative Executive Officer and President KOBAYAKAWA Tomoaki, "TEPCO is honoured
and humbled to be able to support the Tokyo 2020 Games as an Official Contributor. Looking back, we also
supported for the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 1964. Leveraging our know-how, experience and
networks, we will do our utmost to ensure a stable power supply for the venues and other facilities of the Tokyo
2020 Games, and contribute to a safe and secure event."
TEPCO is Japan's largest power company group and comprises four independent business entities: TEPCO Fuel
& Power, Inc., TEPCO Power Grid, Inc., TEPCO Energy Partner, Inc., and TEPCO Renewable Power, Inc. The Group
