Climate Governance and Strategy


As climate change affects product development and business operations, we continue to focus on the implementation of our climate actions and goals after the Paris Agreement and incorporate them into our sustainability strategy.

Board of Directors ASUS Sustainable Development Policy is reviewed and passed by the Chairman of the Board of Directors who serves as the highest decision-making person and is responsible for sustainability issues of ASUS Group. Duties include the approval for climate change strategies, goals and actions. Starting from 2022, climate action progress and achievements will be reported to the Board of Directors quarterly, instead of yearly.
Sustainability and Green Quality Management Center The Chairman has instructed the CEO to serve as the highest-making manager for climate change and sustainability management, and establish the dedicated unit "Sustainability and Green Quality Management Center" (SGQM). ASUS appoints a Chief Sustainability Officer (CSO) to analyze global sustainability trends and execute sustainability projects, and also incorporates the sustainable development taskforce unit as one of the taskforce units of the Business Continuity Management Committee, which reports risk management indicators related to climate change each quarter.
The SGQM Center is a full-time unit responsible for climate action and carbon emission reduction targets, and the achievement rate of the climate action target is one of its key performance indicators. Additional incentives are rewarded for outstanding ESG performance.
GreenASUS Steering Committee & SERASUS Steering Committee The CSO serves as the management representative and reports to the CEO. He is responsible for horizontal inter-departmental coordination and collaboration to implement sustainability strategies and climate action issues into products, operations, and value chain management. The Steering Committee is responsible for periodically monitoring and managing the performance indicator regarding climate action performance. For example, the 2025 product energy efficiency target is one of the performance indicators of the business unit (BU); and the procurement team and supply chain management team are in charge of carbon reduction target management in the supply chain.

Member of the Taiwan Climate Partnership

Eight major technology companies including ASUS, AUO, Delta Electronics, Pegatron, TSMC, Lite-On, Acer, and Microsoft have formed the Taiwan Climate Partnership (TCP) with the aim of using their influence on their suppliers to lead the supply chain in Taiwan keeping up with international initiatives for carbon emissions reduction. TCP leverages the power of partners in the alliance to connect with international initiatives such as RE100 and CDP, monitor global trends in countering climate change, and introduce new initiatives to Taiwan. As a founding member, ASUS is committed to supporting supply chain partners in attaining the carbon reduction targets by increasing energy efficiency and promoting low-carbon manufacturing.


As the threat of climate change intensifies, "net zero emissions by 2050" has become the consensus in global climate actions. Nearly 140 countries across the world that produce 88% of global carbon emissions have pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, demonstrating that the world is moving towards net zero emissions. According to the "Net Zero Economy Index 2021" published by PwC in 2021, achieving net zero emissions by 2050 will be difficult. Reducing carbon emissions by half by 2030 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 require a five-fold increase in the rate of global decarbonization. It means that every industry across the world must accelerate their transformation to attain net zero emissions. ASUS set science-based targets (SBT) for carbon emission reduction and initiated our climate actions in three stages: enhance energy efficiency, expand the use of renewable energy, and remove residual emissions by innovative technology, to lead the value chain to net zero.
