Acer Earthion: our long-term commitment to the environment

 

Acer Earthion embodies our long-term commitment to the environment. Every three seconds, the world loses enough forest to cover a football pitch and over the last century, we have destroyed half of our wetlands. Global greenhouse gas emissions have risen for three consecutive years and the planet is keeping pace with potentially catastrophic climate change. It is a truth that we can no longer ignore.

What we have done so far

At Acer, we have been committed to improving energy efficiency since 2008. We have adopted CDP‘s global disclosure system to manage the environmental impacts of our supply chain and expanded the system to two levels of supplier engagement.

In 2012, we started setting carbon reduction goals through energy management and green energy use, taking 2009 as the base year.

As a matter of fact, through constant efforts and efforts, our Group, including its global operations and subsidiaries, has successfully met its 2020 target of reducing its carbon emissions by 60% worldwide.

100% renewable electricity to be more and more sustainable

Recently, we joined the RE100, a global initiative that brings together the world’s most influential companies committed to 100% renewable electricity.

“Acer joins over 300 of the world’s leading businesses committed to driving market change”, said Sam Kimmins, Head of RE100, The Climate Group. Our goal is to achieve 100% renewable energy use by 2035. In August 2021, we were pleased to announce that our group made the shortlist in the RE100 Key Collaborator Award.

Acer Earthion – Mutual cooperation is our strength

Our efforts towards a balance in finding integrated and innovative solutions while respecting the planet gives life to a unique platform of its kind. Earthion is a blend of the words “Earth + Mission” and combines the strengths of our company, our supply chain partners, consumers (channels) and our employees.

Our mission is to help address environmental challenges through innovative and integrated solutions. The driving force behind Earthion is each member’s belief that its mutual collaboration can effectively create a positive impact on the environment.

Acer Aspire Vero – a sustainability-focused notebook

The first product within the Earthion platform, Acer Aspire Vero, is a step towards reimagining the computer manufacturing process. The entire device chassis and keyboard caps are made from post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR).

Its eco-friendly packaging consists of a box of 80-85% recycled paper pulp and the plastic packaging for adapter protection is reduced by using the paper sleeves instead.

In addition, the laptop bag and the sheet between the keyboard and the screen are made with 100% industrial recycled plastic.

Let’s step forward with Acer Earthion for a cleaner and greener future for tomorrow’s generations.
