Acer has long held a belief in being environmentally responsible for sustainability. In upholding that belief, the company shared its commitment to carbon neutrality as it introduced the Aspire Vero laptop line, beginning with the new Acer Aspire Vero 16 (AV16-51P).

With international standards as its guidelines, Acer ensures that proper steps are being taken at every stage of its product’s development, resulting in the minimization of its carbon footprint and its subsequent neutrality through the application of high-quality carbon credits.

Acer Inc. COO Jerry Kao said that the company is tackling the “increasing challenges posed by climate change.” To address that problem, it is proposing “conscious technology” designed and made with consideration for the future,” on the product side. Meanwhile, on the corporate side, Acer is getting involved in the “RE100 initiative” to achieve “100% renewable energy by 2035” and “net-zero emissions by 2050.”

Living to the banner of Acer’s aspirations, the crux of the Vero laptop’s design has been in minimizing its carbon footprint throughout its lifecycle, starting from packaging to recycling.

The latest product, Aspire Vero 16 (AV16-51P), lives up to that principle as seen through the following:

  • Packaging: Made of 100 percent recyclable packaging.
  • Color, material, and finish: Its chassis is made of 60 percent (versus 30 percent from the first generations).
  • Components: Powered by the more energy-efficient Intel Core Ultra processors, with Intel AI Boost for extreme power efficiency.
  • Shipping: Partners with logistics providers with reduced standard sea containers’ emissions due to the use of biofuel.
  • Recycling and repair: Uses standard screws to facilitate easy disassembly for repair, upgrade, or recycle.
