Environmental Footprints of Supply Chain

Analyzing more than 100,000 data from environmental footprint surveys over the years, weidentified significant emission sources in the manufacturing process of 9 key components,including: panels, motherboards, IC, wires, power supplies, mechanical components, keyboards,batteries, hard drives, as well as OEMs for notebook computers, desktop computers, monitors,and motherboards. According to the "Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) Greenhouse Gas andWater Resources Questionnaires", key vendors were surveyed. The results of the 2020 inventorywere as follows:

Greenhouse Gas

  • The total emissions of Scope 1 and Scope 2: 587,663 metric tons/CO2e
  • 13% of ASUS production lines used renewable energy-ssolar
  • 60% of suppliers set greenhouse gas reduction targets, and the percentage of suppliers who set reduction targets over the years was as follows:

Water Resource

  • Total water consumption of manufacturing process: 20.5 million cubic liters
  • 100% of the waste water of motherboard supplier met the legal standards
  • 66% of suppliers set water reduction targets, and the percentage of suppliers who set reduction targets over the years was as follows:

Waste

  • Total amount of industrial waste generated: 35 million metric tons
  • 100% of suppliers entrust qualified waste disposers

 

In order to reduce the environmental footprint, we have formulated 2025 Sustainability Goals to promote various management plans

  • Greenhouse Gas: Ensure that key suppliers achieve a 30% reduction in carbon intensity rates by 2025
  • Water Resource: Assist all suppliers to receive ISO 14001 certification by 2025
  • Waste: Extend the Zero Waste to Landfill program to key suppliers and set the waste conversion rate
