We implement stringent management of environment, health and safety (EHS), setting targets and action plans each year to continually improve EHS performance. We also strive to reduce the impact of business operations on the environment and community.
Acer is a brand that operates under a global model, with our headquarters located in Xizhi. Acer' other Taiwanese branches, service centers, and distribution centers are all also normal office or industrial buildings.
We comprehensively follow the Acer EHS Policies, implementing thorough EHS management systems to achieve our goals and commitments in this regard. These include regular monitoring of adherence to and applicability of Acer standards to manage potential risks to people and the environment and the environmental impact of our products. A range of measures have been put in place to help ensure staff have a comfortable working environment that values health and safety.
In the past, Acer’s environmental and safety and health management coverage was mainly based on Taiwanese office areas and business units. In 2020, we once again undertook environmental aspect identification in major countries and regions around the world to understand the status of environmental management with each subsidiary. Other subsidiaries and business units that have implemented ISO environmental management systems, including ACSI, AEB, Highpoint, AST, ISU also received the new ISO 14001:2015 system audits and occupational health and safety management systems ISO 45001 certification.
Acer ensures EHS policies are put into practice according to ISO standards by regularly conducting internal and external audits. With the objective of prevention through inspection, defects found by auditors are documented for correction, ensuring that the inspection system serves as a reference for continual improvement.
