Acer Chromebook – 5 ways to make your school more sustainable with Google Workspace

Eco-Friendly Acer Chromebook for teachers sustainability

Sustainability has assumed a vital role in today’s society and our combined commitment can make a significant difference for our planet. Thankfully, students have become more eco-minded than ever, with climate change and the environment listed among the top priorities of the younger generation.

Undoubtedly, education is a cornerstone in this scenario. Schools are tasked with fostering the upcoming drivers of change towards greener lifestyles and choices. But what can schools as institutions do to be more sustainable? Choosing sustainable devices and solutions for educational purposes means setting a strong example of responsibility. 

The new Acer Chromebooks paired with Google Workspace for Education, for instance, are game-changers when it comes to eco-friendly technology for your classroom.

Read on to find out why!

1 – Environmentally-friendly and recycled materials

First off, when you choose the new Acer Chromebooks, you are picking devices designed for schools and ready for the planet. Devices such as the Acer Chromebook 511 or Chromebook 512 boast a touchpad made entirely out of ocean-bound plastic, known as OceanGlass™.

Secondly, selected chassis covers feature post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials from reprocessed plastic waste. Last but not least, all our new Chromebooks come in 100% recycled packaging.

2 – A carbon-neutral, cloud-first educational environment

Did you know that Google has been carbon-neutral since 2007? With cloud-first resources from Google Workspace, you can reduce your school’s CO2 emissions and IT energy use by 87%!

3 – Improved energy consumption and performance

Acer Chromebook’s Chrome OS enables efficient energy use, optimised device performance and digital well-being in the classroom and beyond.

Thanks to continuous automatic updates and assistive AI, your students will enjoy a minimum of 10 more hours of battery life, allowing them to go through their school day with a single charge and, therefore, less electricity used.

As a matter of fact, Acer Chromebooks consume 46% less energy than competitors.

4 – Curb e-waste with Acer Chromebook

Sustainable schools should reduce needless waste. E-waste is made up of unwanted, non- working, end-of-life devices. If well chosen, your school devices won’t fall into that category for a very long time.

Durable, ruggedized components lengthen the lifespan of Acer Chromebooks. These school companions feature Mechanically-anchored keys, Military-tested designs, and widened brackets, just to name a few.

Plus, all our new Chromebooks are easy to repair and/or repurpose!

5 – Fewer transport emissions and more paperless classes

To foster sustainability in schools, Acer Chromebook and Google Workspace for Education give your classroom environmentally-friendly options and flexibility.

Apps such as Google Classroom and Google Meet keep parents informed electronically while reducing emissions caused by traveling to conferences and face-to-face meetings.

What’s more, Google Docs, Forms, Slides and Sheets improve efficiency while reducing paper used for tests, textbooks and communications.

Pupils can combine these tools with Acer Chromebook Spin 311‘s multiple form factors that adapt to any learning environment – remotely, on the go or in person!
