Resource and Energy Management

Energy Management Policy

As one of the world’s top ICT companies, we pursue the balanced development of economy, environment and society, set sustainable goals for environmental protection and energy conservation, commit to continuously improve various environmental protection and energy saving performance, and create an environment friendly workplace.

"Energy Management Team" is established by integrating the resources of the company's global human resources, ESG office and general affairs. The team build up an energy management system in accordance with the ISO 50001 international standard and targeting to reduce energy consumption, improve energy efficiency and decrease carbon emissions. We promise:

  •        Improving energy efficiency and reducing unnecessary waste of energy.
  •        Compliance with energy management regulations and implementation of energy conservation improvement actions.
  •        Prioritization of procurement of energy-efficient products and supporting green energy-saving design.
  •        Strengthening energy conservation awareness communication and continuous improvement of energy performance.

Energy Management Goals

The main source of energy consumption for Acer is electricity use in offices. To address this, we are actively pursuing the three main goals laid out below, as well as undertaking relevant planning and evaluation.

Green electricity usage

Optimized Electrical Equipment

Strengthened power usage management


In 2021, Acer built two large solar power generation sites in Longtan Aspire Park. Statistics show that total power generation for the whole year was about 3.53 million kWh, accounting for about 10% of Acer’s total global power consumption. In comparison to 2020, this amounts to an increase of about 350,000 kWh.

To systematically manage electricity consumption and further improve energy efficiency, the Xizhi headquarters received ISO 50001 energy management system accreditation in 2021, and we will continue to evaluate the effectiveness of existing energy-saving measures and explore the feasibility of other measures every year. This year, we have proposed to the Building Management Committee that we evaluate a number of energy-saving actions, such as installing a high-efficiency air-conditioning system, building a large solar power generation system, and setting up an electric vehicle charging area. We look forward to bringing together a diverse array of resources to reduce the impact of electricity consumption in the park area.

In 2021, Acer’s main energy-saving measures included replacing old air conditioning units, switching to energy-saving lighting, and using systematic management at Aspire Park to provide insights into the condition of each building’s electrical and mechanical equipment, facilitating appropriate adjustments. Additionally, our Xizhi office has made
changes to the hours in which air conditioning is operational and put in place an automated system to turn off lighting during afternoon breaks and after working hours.

Waste Management

Lacking manufacturing plants of our own, Acer’s main source of waste is general waste. In order to reduce waste output, we encourage our employees to reduce the use of disposable plastic, tableware, and paper cups, and to strengthen waste reuse through the implementation of various resource recycling and regular business waste recycling management methods.

As for the disposal of that waste, we are committed to regulatory specifications and the Company’s environmental policy, with the disposal of general household waste contracted by the building or in cooperation with local cleaning teams to transport to local incinerators. Recyclable resources are collected and transferred by local recycling vehicles. Business
waste, which is primarily waste batteries, light bulbs, cases, and scrap metal, is disposed of by qualified contractors after collection to ensure that transportation and processing do not harm the environment. To reduce the impact of the waste incineration process on the environment, starting this year, the destruction of confidential documents will be done with a water-based process instead.

Statistics show that in 2021, Acer Taiwan’s workforce increased by approximately 2.4% over 2020, while total waste production decreased by approximately 7.7% in the same time.


Water Resource Management

With Acer’s global business model primarily focused on product sales and customer service, with no involvement in production processes, there is not really any large-scale water use. The main source of water demand is the everyday water needs of office staff, with the main water source municipal water, having no significant impact on water resources; Our primary source of wastewater is regular sewage water, which is discharged in accordance with local regulations into the local sewer systems and processed by local treatment plants, thus posing no significant threat to the environment.

In 2019, Acer set a short-term goal of reducing its global water consumption by 1% per year and a medium-term goal of reducing water consumption by 7% by 2025 (compared to 2018). In order to achieve further water savings, after repeated analysis and evaluation, the 2025 medium-term goal was revised to a 10% reduction this year. To achieve these goals , we collect global water use data and trends through systematic management and review progress toward these goals every year. At the same time, we encourage each office district to implement water conservation measures such as water recycling, improving water facilities, and strengthening water management.

In 2021, Acer used 164.324 million liters of water worldwide, with well water accounting for about 6.865 million of that.
Total water consumption decreased by 5.4%, with reclaimed water accounting for about 19.7% of total water
consumption, while the total amount of reclaimed water decreased by about 6.8 million liters compared to 2020.
