Sustainability at The Heart of An Incredible Future

Jan 5, 2023

The theme of 2023 ASUS CES is Seeing an Incredible Future. To see the future, you have to take a clear-eyed look at the present and the past. If the past few years offer any lessons, the world as we know it is more vulnerable than we would’ve imagined. The pandemic, climate change, inflation, and geopolitical tensions have given us a glimpse of the future that lies ahead of us if we remain on the same track. But an incredible tomorrow is still within our reach.

At ASUS, we believe the transformative power of technology contains within it the potential to change the path our world is on and help move us towards an incredible future. We just need to start building it today, putting sustainability at the heart of everything we do.

As our Chairman Jonney Shih said, “We incorporate sustainable development goals into the corporate decision-making process to make positive contributions to society and the environment through practical action.”

And we focus our effort in four areas: circular economy, climate action, responsible manufacturing, and value creation.

For circular economy, ASUS takes a whole lifecycle approach, targeting sustainability across every phase of product life cycle and enhancing our competitiveness. Our achievements so far include:

  • ASUS has saved approximately 320,000 trees from deforestation by using over 20,000 tons of recycled paper in 2022.
  • Over 1,500 tons of post-consumer recycled plastic have been used in our products since 2017.
  • And, we have recycled more than 40,000 tons of e-waste since 2019.

ASUS climate action is guided by a clear roadmap to net-zero and by our science-based targets for carbon emission reduction.

There are three stages in our roadmap to achieving our goals:

  • The energy efficiency of ASUS key products exceed 30% of ENERGY STAR standard.
  • We have also committed to using 100% renewable energy in our Taiwan-based operations by 2030 and global operations by 2035.
  • ASUS has invested in innovative technology to remove remaining carbon emissions by 2050.

To signal our commitment, ASUS has joined RE100, a global corporate renewable energy initiative, and we have committed to setting a science-based target with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
