The impacts of Global climate change on environment and on economies become the most concerned issue in recent years. To face the risks and challenges brought by global warming, ASUSTeK supports the mitigation of climate change strategy and embraces the "no-regret policy" to implement its GHG Reduction Plan and reduce carbon footprint of the product through innovations.
ASUSTeK performs Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) Analysis to calculate the energy consumption in raw material extraction, assembly, distribution, use and disposal stage of a product. The analysis shows that products consume the largest energy during the use stage and thus this stage has the greatest impact to the environment. The study shows that in order to achieve GHG reduction goal, improving energy efficiency is the most cost-effective way with the lowest environmental impact. To reach this goal, ASUS spares no effort to not only provide high-efficiency power supply for the product but also work hard on the product design. We have shown our efforts through both hardware and software innovations.
To achieve energy efficiency, ASUSTeK continuously develops energy conservation software and hardware based on the requirements set forth in the strictest energy efficient standard - Energy Star - and requires all notebooks to comply with the energy efficient standard.
