We carry out supplier ESG scorecard evaluations, reviewing ESG implementation among our suppliers and performance therein. These are part of quarterly business review meetings focused on major product lines and key components and provided to senior management of Acer and our suppliers, serving as a driving influence behind our bilateral business relationships.
Supplier ESG scorecard assessments include the following:
Overall, the overall performance of suppliers on the ESG scorecard in 2021 continued to improve, with 59% of suppliers achieving an “excellent” standard and 30% at the “medium” level. We also use quarterly business reviews and other communication methods to demand underperforming suppliers implement appropriate actions to improve their ESG 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.
