Circular Economy Model
Circular Economy Concept
The circular economy model helps reduce the excessive waste of resources and environmental pollution and supports an environmentally friendly business model.
ASUS use the four following procedures to support the five business models proposed by the international consulting firm Accenture: Circular Supply chain, Product Life Extension, Products as a Service (PaaS), sharing Platform, and Recovery and Recycling. We incorporated the circular economy strategy into our basic economic framework.
Product Life Cycle Assessment
While creating product value, ASUS also pay attention to the impact of product life cycle on the environment. Through the different stages of raw material, such as extraction, manufacturing, transportation, use, disposal, etc., in accordance with the ISO 14040 and 14044 life cycle assessment (LCA) standards, ASUS has quantified the possible environmental impact, and at the same time identified the emission hotspots in the product life cycle, and continued to target and ensure the product carbon footprints have been tracked and decremented.
