Haier announced that it has provided more than 60,000 environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient products to the Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG).
Products such as refrigerators, air-conditioners, washing machines, and water heaters will be used throughout the Olympic venues.

Focusing on the mission of the Beijing Olympic Games -- "Green Olympics, High-tech Olympics, People's Olympics" -- and using its experience as provider of air-conditioners to the Athens 2004 Olympic stadium, Haier has designed a complete line of green products for the Beijing Games. About 31 categories of Haier products have been installed in all Olympic venues in Beijing and the co-host cities. The Olympic products are also on sale throughout China to meet the consumers' need.

Haier has supplied all venues with 13,236 refrigerators, all CFC-free, with 5353 using carbon dioxide as a natural refrigerant.

About 1500 green washing machines have been installed in 18 laundries established by Haier in the Olympic Village and the Media Village to provide quick and efficient laundry services for all athletes, officials, and journalists. This includes 530 detergent-free washing machines and more than 700 double-driven washing machines. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has chosen the technologies used in these washing machines to become an international standard.

Haier also installed 2864 sq m of solar power panels for air-conditioners and water heaters in the Qingdao Olympic Sailing Center, the Beijing Olympic Green Tennis Court and the Olympic Village Restaurant. According to Haier's calculation, this energy-effective system will reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 2140 tons per year.

Olympic venues are cooled using the Haier 08 Olympic wind air-conditioner, which reportedly is the only air-conditioner providing "Grade A" fresh air. It incorporates a self-cleaning function to keep the air filter clean and unobstructed, ensuring cleaner air, while also saving energy.
