Green Initiative – E-Bikes for acer employees

Acer is green and is now becoming even greener: With the green initiative in mind, we at Acer Germany have implemented several projects to protect the environment. Last year, for example, we installed photovoltaic systems on the company's roof in Ahrensburg, saving 228,628 kg of CO2 per year. Additionally, we donated notebooks to local schools to equip students with the required hardware.  

To also make the commute to work more sustainable, a bike garage has been built in Ahrensburg to provide the opportunity for more employees to cycle to work regularly. But that's not all: Since October, two company-owned Acer-colored e-bikes have been available, which can recharge at a solar-powered charging station at the office. The bikes are primarily for business use but are also available to rent for personal use. Additionally to our deep commitment to encouraging our employees to bike to work, we also launched an internal bike competition. 23 active cyclists left their cars at home and achieved impressive results: In total, they were able to cover more than 6,000 km by bike within three months.

Furthermore, a Bike Inspection Day was implemented in August, allowing employees to have their bikes repaired free of charge by a professional company.
