Petrochem company Unioil is an environment warrior

FOR a petroleum company to adopt and develop a station that will feature car charging facilities for electric vehicles seems to be a self-inflicted deathblow. But for Unioil Petroleum Philippines Inc., it is simply seeing the future and making it happen now.

“Electric vehicles could be the greatest enemy of a petroleum company, yet here we are launching the a series of gas stations with electric vehicle recharger,” Janice Co Roxas-Chua, Chief Financial Officer, Unioil Petroleum Philippines said in her opening speech.

These initiatives are among many that Unioil is implementing as it launched its ‘Doing Our Part’ campaign. The activity is aimed at encouraging Filipinos to make a difference in society through the small, everyday actions and responsible decisions they make, including the decision to choose a cleaner fuel.

“The piece of candy wrapper in your pocket, or the trash you decide to bring home, the light you turn off as you leave the room, or in the case of companies and enterprises, the decision to use alternative forms of energy, these are all conscious efforts towards a greener Philippines,” Roxas-Chua added during the post event press conference.

As pioneers of advanced fuels in the country, Unioil introduces its Euro 5 compliant fuels to give 

consumers a cleaner and better alternative without the extra cost.  Unioil once again becomes the first and only retail petroleum brand to provide the cleanest range of high performance fuels.  

The company opened its first gasoline station in 1997 after the deregulation of the oil industry. This move also saw the big players playing catch up with the initiatives Unioil made in terms of introduction of new fuels and even new processes.

The company was the first one to bring in Euro 4 fuels in the country, and even conducted awareness and training campaigns for the use of the fuel assuring the market its adaptability for most vehicles even as early as 2004 when it first introduced higher rating, more environmentally friendly fuels.

Unioil’s “Doing Our Part” campaign engages everyone to make meaningful decisions for the community through every day driving with Unioil. With this advocacy, Unioil presents itself as the reliable and cleaner alternative for motorists on their journey towards a healthier society and a greener environment.  

“People are now becoming conscious about their actions and how it affects society. With our latest campaign, we want to encourage Filipinos to make small yet meaningful decisions that can leave positive and lasting impact to the community,” Roxas-Chua emphasized.


The campaign launch also emphasized Unioil’s Euro 5 compliant fuels that have significantly less sulfur content at 10 ppm (parts per million), 5 times cleaner than Euro 4 standard fuels. Based on actual tests conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Enviroment Management Bureau (DENR-EMB), Unioil’s Euro 5 fuels has up to 77 percent less emissions compared to Euro 4 fuels. Motorists who make the choice to contribute to the environment also get
better engine performance and fuel economy.

“The simple switch to Euro 5 gasoline contributes to better engine performance across a range of vehicles. So with this, motorists are able to get better engine performance and making a conscious choice to contribute to the environment,” Kenneth Pundanera, Unioil Petroleum Philippines President said. 

As part of the company’s efforts to reduce the carbon footprint from its own operations, Unioil announced its first “Hybrid” station in Quezon City. The corporate program uses solar power to augment its own energy needs and reduce its carbon footprint. Using the advanced Smartflower solar technology which has an automated sun tracking technology allowing it to follow the sun’s movements to increase by as much as 40 percent solar energy production compared to conventional fixed type solar panels.  

The company’s commitment to the environment includes air quality monitoring through the installation of Airvisual nodes. This interesting initiative also allows Unioil to feed air quality information to the Cloud which is accessible by anyone through a mobile app.      

The petroleum company is also the first to have a commercially-available electric vehicle (EV) charger in one of its retail stations to advocate the use of more EVs. 

“The plan is later to feed power into the EV chargers using the Smartflower solar technology so that we are able to complete the full cycle of true clean energy.

“For the past 50 years, Unioil has always been putting innovative petroleum solutions in the hands of consumers.  Today, we continue this by introducing breakthrough ways to harness solar power, promote the use of electric vehicles, and drive with cleaner fuel,

” Pundanera said.
The Unioil president also emphasized that as the company grows in terms of stations, so will the advocacy of clean fuel and clean energy systems. This he encourages by getting more station franchises nationwide.

“It only costs about half a million pesos to franchise a Unioil station. With this investment comes training of station managers and of course the development of this clean energy thinking, which we believe is what makes Unioil profitable as a business,” Pundanera explains saying that it helps develops the entrepreneurial spirit by focusing on also developing human resources as advocates for a clean environment.

Its programs and Euro 5 performance fuels, also serve to improve educate motorists, environmental advocates, and families to join its advocacy in making responsible choices for a sustainable and healthier tomorrow. (RAYMOND B. TRIBDINO)
