Product Environmental Information

Eco Label

"The United Nations held the United Nations Conference on Human Environment" on June 5, 1972 in Stockholm, Sweden. This was the first meeting of its kind attended by governments from all over the world to discuss the protection of the global environment. Results were later published as the "Declaration of United Nations Conference on Human Environment". All members reached a consensus that "there is only one Earth". During the conference, the idea of the "World Environment Day"(WED) was created with a view to alert people to environmental issues. Since then, the key issue of each meeting is the agenda for WED each year.

The theme of the WED 2015 was "Seven Billion Dreams. One Planet, Consume with Care". What does "Consume with Care" means? In essence, it is the kind of consumption behavior under the precondition of sustainable development of the Earth. For ICT product, it resembles green consumption.

Since 2000, ASUS has dedicated itself to environmental protection and integrated our commitment in product manufacturing and design. We have included standards of various international eco labels into our technical standards, thus the R&D engineer could refer to the technical standards at the product design stage and the product would be ready for government procurement and meet customers' requests for regulation compliance.

Then, what kind of specifications could be recognized as a "green product"? There should be an impartial standard as reference for defining "green" to avoid the misleading of the consumers as "Greenwash" by the industry. At this point, "Eco labels" are efficient means for helping consumers identify green products. The labels align with regulations that establish thresholds throughout the product life cycle. Products accredited with ecolabels have been proven to have lesser negative impacts on the environment.


ASUS analyzes the requirements of eco labels and identifies significant programs to actively apply for or registers the product to promote green products.

The eco label helps consumers to identify products or services with better environmental quality. It is deemed as one of the most suitable methods to implement a circular economy. For example, the Type I Ecolabel defined under ISO 14024 requires that the product must comply with the requirements in the whole life cycle, and be verified by the independent third party. Among the market, only 25% to 30% of products could achieve such a level of environmental performance.

ASUS has invested in green product R&D over a long period and acquired green certification under strict review by international ecolabel, which proves that in addition to its high quality, our product also presents excellent environmental performance. Take the EPEAT ecolabel for instance, ASUS products, manufacturing process and operation could comply with the requirements on ten aspects, namely substance management, material selection, product design, energy usage, product & corporate footprint, regenerated energy, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), conflict minerals and packaging reduction, which reduced environmental impact over the entire life cycle.

However, the requirements of eco labels have become more stringent, such as the EPEAT standard since its revision in 2018, ASUS still actively registers mainstream products such as notebook computers, desktop computers, and liquid crystal displays as EPEAT products. The ASUS ExpertBook B9 adopted a magnesium-lithium alloy body with an ultra-narrow bezel design, and thus it weighed less than one kilogram. It meets strict environmental standards throughout its product life cycle and was registered at EPEAT Gold level It did not use restricted hazardous substances as well as beryllium, and the PCB board eliminated the use of halogen flame retardants. In terms of energy saving, the energy consumption of the product was 40% above the Energy Star standard. Furthermore, the packaging box was made by paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) to ensure quality, design and sustainability.

Taking products receiving EPEAT label in 2020, we use the GEC (Green Electronics Council) assessment tool and get the environmental impact reductions of EPEAT products sold in 2020 as followed: reducing more than 10,971 tons of CO2e and 1,366 tons of solid waste, saving 320,000 tons of water and 55,280 mWh of electricity. It demonstrates that products with EPEAT label perform better as well as our commitment to reducing environmental impacts through ASUS products.


In addition to EPEAT, ASUS also actively participated in the application of various eco labels. In 2020, we acquired a total of 8 types of eco labels worldwide, and the revenue from ASUS products with eco labels was 81.3% of our total product revenue. We also adopt the method of Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) to calculate the proportion of sales on eco label products over corporate revenue as one of the reference indicators for investors. It was also important for ASUS to demonstrate green competitiveness. Among them, annual revenue from sold products compliant with EPEAT or equivalent standard was 8.6% of the total revenue, the revenue from products compliant with Energy Star was 52.1% of the total revenue. For energy consumption of the product, please see chapter Climate Action for more details.

Product Eco Profile

Other than the eco label products, ASUS follows the ISO 14040 standard to evaluate the environmental impacts through life cycle from extraction, manufacturing, usage, packaging, to end of life, and publish product eco profile.

In 2017, ASUS conducted the EP&L (Environmental Profit and Loss) Project to monetize environmental impact. The scope did not only include ASUS-owned operation sites. We also invited our tier 1 to tier 3 suppliers to measure, value and report the environmental externalities including GHG, Water and Waste etc.. ASUS will announce complete EP&L report in the near future.

The Eco Declaration

According to ECMA-370 "The Eco Declaration - TED" published by ECMA International, ASUS discloses product environmental information, including but not limited to chemicals, electromagnetic compatibility and safety regulations, materials, packaging, and energy efficiency.
