The Acer Group Global Commitment.

Back in May 2021, The Acer Group announced that it had joined the RE100 initiative and shared a pledge to achieve 100% renewable energy use by the year 2035. Acer declared its mission to help tackle environmental challenges with its “Earthion” platform that unites the strengths of its employees and supply chain partners and expands the circle of impact of its sustainability efforts.

Acer Aspire Vero – Green Laptop

More than just a stylish computer, the Acer Aspire Vero (AV15-51) is a tangible manifestation of Acer’s commitment to more sustainable operations. Its chassis is composed of 30% PCR plastic, cutting CO2 emissions by 21% [[1]] for the production of that part. The keycaps also contain 50% PCR plastic, and the Aspire Vero’s award-winning 100% recyclable packaging can be repurposed as a DIY laptop stand. From there, a thoughtful design helps to eliminate needless waste by making it easy to disassemble, repair, upgrade and recycle the computer or its components. Running the newly released Windows 11 operating system, it’s incredibly easy to use, too.

The green PC’s 99% recyclable 15.6-inch FHD IPS display is powered by 11th Gen Intel® Core processors and Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics[[2]], so users can count on world-class performance and productivity when they need it. When working on less demanding tasks, Acer’s new VeroSense software gives users the option of selecting a usage mode that has been optimized for energy efficiency and battery life. Features like Wi-Fi 6, a Type-C USB port and two Type-A USB ports make for a more reliable usage experience, while Acer TrueHarmony and Acer PurifiedVoice with AI noise reduction allow for crystal-clear conference calls.

2nd Life for Your Old Device.

Something Acer UK recognises if the responsibility of what happens to the tech after customers are finished with them or upgrade to a new product as e-waste is at an all time high in the UK up by 21% ( [iii])

Partnering up with Computers4Charity, customers are able to donate old, used, working or broken laptops or devices to be collected, safely data wiped and sent to someone who really needs it.

The products are taken to a completely secure facility where each device will be given a second life through refurbishment, saving the planet from 30kg of CO2 emissions*.

Computers4Charity is a purely charitable non-profit company providing previously unemployed young people with jobs and training under the government’s “Kick Start” scheme and create social value from the refurbishing process.

The devices are given to re-hab facilities, young carers, homeless youth, hospices, charity volunteers, unemployed veterans and UK charities supporting schools in Africa.

 

[1] Emissions saved compared to regular laptop plastic chassis for laptops of the same size. The estimated value is calculated from PlasticsEurope Eco-profile reports. The comparison is only focused on the material itself and is limited to compare 100% virgin plastic with 70% virgin plastic and 30% recycled plastic while assuming other factors that may influence CO2 emissions are equal.
