Acer employees share their vision for Project Humanity, making environmental protection and talent cultivation a top priority.
At Acer, we want all our decisions to be responsible, as a corporation and as human beings. Launched in 2017, Project Humanity is Acer’s global initiative to make the world a better place. We want to ensure that every employee has the chance to share their voice and contribute to the decisions we take. From the products we design, our partners, or our operations’ efficiency, every decision counts.
We are committed to offering resources and innovative solutions to inspire curious minds because we believe that education is an integral part of unleashing human potential.
We want to do our part through innovative solutions and invite our colleagues, stakeholders, and consumers to join the initiative to create a greener tomorrow together.
