Green Products

The eco label helps consumers identify products or services with better environmental quality that is superior to those required by law. 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 products to comply with the requirements in the whole life cycle, and verification by an independent third party. Only 25% of the products on the market achieve such a level of environmental performance.

ASUS has been long investeding in the R&D of green products. Through the use of safer chemicals, environmentally friendly and recycled materials, lightweight packaging, and outstandingly energy-efficient excellent products energy efficiency, and along with the design of products that are easy to disassemble and repair, the revenue from ASUS Eco Friendly Products was now account for 86.6%7 of revenue. Furthermore, we demonstrate our green competitiveness by obtaining strict certification of international environmental eco labels.

EPEAT is regarded as one of the highest product environmental protection standards. Its standard include ten requirements for substance management, material selection, product design, energy usage, and product & corporate footprint, which focus on reducing the impact on the environment in the entire life cycle and is regarded. The EPEAT 2.0 has become more stringent since it revised was in 2018. But ASUS still actively registers products such as laptops, desktop computers, and liquid crystal displays as EPEAT products, and obtains the TCO certification in Sweden and Japan Eco Mark. In addition to EPEAT, ASUS also actively participated in the application of various eco labels in Europe, North America, and Asia. In 2021, we acquired a total of 8 types of eco labels worldwide.

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 and an important part for demonstrating ASUS's green competitiveness. Annual revenue from sold products compliant with EPEAT or equivalent standard was 14.2%8 of the total revenue.
