Acer commits to carbon neutrality for Vero laptop series

Acer announced its commitment to achieve carbon neutrality for its Aspire Vero laptop line, starting with the new Aspire Vero 16 (AV16-51P).

The company will follow international standards for carbon footprint calculation and carbon neutrality, and take actions to reduce emissions at each stage of the device lifecycle. Additionally, Acer will use high-quality carbon credits to offset the remaining emissions and attain carbon neutrality.

Jerry Kao, COO of Acer Inc., said that the company is taking steps to address the challenges of climate change by proposing “conscious technology” that is designed and made with consideration for the future. He also said that Acer has joined the RE100 initiative and pledged to achieve 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2050.

The Aspire Vero laptops are eco-consciously designed to minimize their carbon footprint throughout their lifecycle. From manufacturing to packaging to end-of-life recycling, each process has been examined and continuously fine-tuned to help contribute towards less emissions. The latest iteration of the product, the Aspire Vero 16 (AV16-51P), has seen efforts across several aspects:

  • Color, Material, and Finish: The chassis is made from a blend of more than 60% recycled plastic (vs. 30% in the first generation), and its surface contains no volatile organic compounds, paint, or additives. The touchpad uses ocean-bound plastic on the surface.
  • Components: The laptop features the latest Intel Core Ultra processors, which are more power efficient than previous generations. It also has Intel AI Boost, a new integrated neural processing unit (NPU) that delivers new AI-powered capabilities with extreme power efficiency.
  • Packaging: The carbon footprint is reduced by recycling the scrap material generated during production and using 100% recyclable packaging. The 100% recycled FSC-certified paper box can be easily repurposed thanks to thoughtful designs.
  • Shipping: Acer has partnered with logistics providers to reduce standard sea containers’ emissions by using biofuel on various routes.
  • Usage: AcerSense battery management software focuses on energy efficiency with four performance modes: Eco+, Eco, Balanced, and Performance.
  • Recycling and Repair: The laptop can be quickly and easily disassembled to repair, upgrade or recycle, using standard screws.

After implementing these emission reduction efforts, Acer will retire high-quality carbon credits to achieve carbon neutrality for the Aspire Vero laptop line.

More details of the Acer Aspire Vero 16 will be shared in January in Las Vegas. Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region. To learn more about availability, product specifications, and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office via
