Waste Management

Waste is a heavy burden. Failure to deal with it properly will cause huge costs to the government, enterprises and society. Therefore, we expect to achieve zero waste and move toward the direction of the circular economy.

ASUS has established an exclusive EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) team to assess the possible environmental impact from company activity for compliance with relevant regulations. To improve corporate performance for environmental protection, the administration team has set strict specifications and continued to promote improvement programs, which helped us to reduce environmental impact to a minimum and head towards the goal of "Zero pollution." As ASUS overseas offices are leased offices, information on waste, waste water, and water is not available. Therefore, the reporting boundaries of the following information are the headquarters and repair centers in Taiwan.

ASUS waste could be classified into general wastes and hazardous wastes. The hazardous wastes mainly include R&D materials and waste, which are treated and recycle by qualified recyclers; the general wastes mainly include daily garbage from employees, which are main reused after adequate recycling. The portion that cannot be recycled will be finally processed with incineration or land-filling.

Since 2015, ASUS had initiated the "Zero Waste to Landfill" program in the Headquarters by adopting UL ECVP 2799- Zero Waste to Landfill standard, which tracks waste flow with quantified index and confirms adequate procedures on waste recycling, reuse and conversion instead of direct land-filling.
