Major Advocacy Initiatives and Participation
To further explore ESG issues and work with global NGOs and enterprises to improve the sustainability of the ICT industry, Acer collaborates with stakeholders around the world to create value and build a win-win ecosystem. We have not engaged in direct lobbying activities related to climate change, but instead have been actively involved as members in the following organizations addressing sustainability issues. Through this long-term commitment, Acer fulfills its role in driving more businesses to actively practice corporate responsibility.
In order to use the results of this communication to promote ongoing progress, we have also established a communication evaluation mechanism and procedure for managing issues of concern. These are aimed at properly managing the opinions of different stakeholders as collected and assessed through communication channels, and at helping us achieve the expected level of communicative performance. On environmental issues, we echo the Paris Agreement's goal of limiting global warming to 1.5℃ and are committed to net zero emissions by 2050 and engage with stakeholders, groups, trade associations, and others to ensure we are all moving in the same direction.
To ensure alignment with stakeholders and trade associations on our net-zero position, we adhere to the principles of due diligence. The ESG office serves as the responsible unit, overseeing information integration across global regions. Prior to engagement, we conduct environmental position assessments of the organizations and initiatives. Additionally, we periodically review the consistency of our participation and Acer's environmental stance during collaborations, ensuring alignment with the Paris Agreement. Regular reports are provided directly to the Chairman and CEO. If there are any inconsistencies between a partner and Acer in terms of environmental position or sustainability activities, we will actively communicate with them, share our opinions, and request adjustments or the implementation of improvement plans. If we find any irreconcilable differences that cannot be resolved in the short term, the ESG Office will assess their correctability and take appropriate action, such as implementing an exit mechanism.
We also disclose the contributions to the trade associations whose primary role is to influence public policy.
