Since 2013, we have carried out vendor CSR scorecard evaluations, reviewing the implementation of CSR among our suppliers and performance therein. Since 2014, these have been part of quarterly business review meetings focused on major product lines and key components since 2014 and provided to senior management of Acer and our suppliers, serving as a driving influence behind our bilateral business relationships.

Vendor CSR scorecard assessments include the following:

Corporate Sustainability Management

  • Corporate Governance
  • Stakeholder Communication
  • Supply Chain Management

Environment, Energy and Climate Change Management

  • GHG Inventory
  • GHG Reduction
  • Carbon Disclosure Supply Chain Program Ratings and Scores
  • Green Electricity and Renewable Energy
  • Carbon Reduction Targets Set in Accordance with SBT Methodology
  • Environmental Problems

Labor, Ethics, Health and Safety Management

  • Management Systems Certifications (to obtain ISO 45001 and ISO 14001 certifications)
  • Conflict Minerals Management
  • RBA Code of Conduct Audit Scores

Overall, the average performance of suppliers on the CSR scorecard in 2019 again improved compared to the previous year; nearly 48.6% of suppliers achieved an “excellent” standard, and nearly 51.4% of suppliers were at the “medium” level. We also use quarterly business reviews or individual meetings in order to demand underperforming vendors implement appropriate actions to improve their CSR performance. This mechanism will continue in the future, and according to internal and external issues and past performance, we will make any necessary adjustments to weighting or items to be assessed.
