Environmental changes caused by climate change continue to impact the global economy and society. ASUS has adopted scenario analysis to identify the potential climate-related financial impact in the future. We adopted forward-looking and proactive climate actions, including incorporating renewable energy as part of business strategies, improving product energy efficiency with our software and hardware R&D capabilities, and driving low-carbon manufacturing transformation of the supply chain. For the purpose of fully reducing carbon footprint across operations.
Ensure that each year’s key products demonstrate energyefficiency that’s 30% above the Energy Star standard
Ensure that key suppliers achieve a 30% reduction in carbon intensity by 2025
Use 100% renewable energy in Taiwan-based operations centers by 2030; and in global operations centers by 2035
Relinquishing the linear economic model of take-make-dispose and transitioning toward a circular economy are crucial for corporate sustainability. ASUS included the impact in product life cycle into product design and increased the use of environmentally friendly materials. We developed green products to increase our green competitiveness. We also continued to expand the extended liabilities of the producer to provide take back services across the globe and increase resource usage efficiency. ASUS also leveraged digital tools to accelerate the development of the circular economy and ensure the safety of the R&D environment.
Promote sustainable procurement and increase the use of environmentally friendly materials in products and packaging by 100%
Expanding green competitiveness and increasing the proportion of Eco Labels revenue to more than 50%
The security of the R&D environment has been improved, and the coverage rate of international information security standards will reach 100% in 2025
Responding to the circular economy to improve the efficiency of resource use, and the global product recycling rate reaches 20%
Sustainability is no longer limited to the enterprise itself, but should also be expanded to the supply chain, to work with upstream and downstream business partners in creating shared value and bring about positive changes to the society. ASUS includs the sustainability performance of the suppliers as an evaluation item for procurement. We became a full member of Responsible Business Alliance (RBA) to ensure that supply chain processes comply with environmental standards, ensure labor safety and human rights across the workplace , and extend information security management to the supply chain to increase its resilience.
Achieve labor and human rights goals by completing 100% of RBA third-party audits of key suppliers and ensuring any necessary corrective actions are taken
Use responsible minerals by sourcing 100% of tantalum, tin, tungsten, gold, and cobalt from qualified smelters
In addition to fulfilling corporate social responsibility and creating economic growth we also expect to use core competencies in digital information to satisfy the needs of the environment and society, and create shared value. In the journey of sustainable transformation, we will drive the next wave of corporate growth and innovation, and explore new commercial markets which will serve as the driving force of corporate growth. We hope to nurture and recruit key talents who share the same goals as ASUS , further promoting social development and positive changes.
Intensify digital transformation and innovation efforts with the goal of a 100% increase in sustainable value creation
Strengthen industry/academia cooperative projects to cultivate more than 1,000 talents
