Acer showcased its “Conscious Technology” vision to help tackle climate change

Acer showcased its “Conscious Technology” vision and its latest energy storage solutions at a press event in Dubai. The company also showed its climate actions and a series of technology and product concepts that aim to create a brighter future.

Acer’s “Conscious Technology” vision reflected its commitment to design and make technology with consideration for the environment and society. The company joined the RE100 initiative and pledged to use 100% renewable electricity by 2035 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. It seeks to amplify its positive impact by collaborating with its supply chain partners, 60% of which have set science-based carbon reduction targets or committed to RE100. The company also set a goal to use 20-30% post-consumer recycled plastic in its computers and monitors by 2025, which it achieved 17% in 2022.

Acer Chairman and CEO Jason Chen said, “We must accelerate the transition to renewable energy to combat climate change caused by global warming. In 2022, the Acer Group reached 44% of renewable electricity usage. To reach our goal of 100%, solar and wind power utilization in energy storage technology will be key. We are taking decisive actions that promote circular economies and provide solutions that minimize the negative impacts on our environment.”

As part of its net-zero commitment, Acer is expanding its presence in the energy storage industry, offering solutions across the supply chain, from household to industrial use, manufacturing to application, and front-of to behind-the-meter solutions to contribute to the energy transition. With its investment in battery cell technologies, the company unveiled new energy storage solutions that extend its portfolio.
