Project Humanity: Acer Switzerland Goes Carbon Dioxide Neutral for Business Devices

Acer Switzerland teams up with Carbon-connect to compensate CO2 emissions generated during production for all Acer business notebooks, desktops and Chromebooks

In 2016, Acer began cooperating with Carbon-connect[1] to offset the CO2 emissions generated during the production and shipment of commercial devices in Switzerland. Today, with every Veriton desktop, TravelMate notebook or Chrome-based product shipped, Acer Switzerland makes a donation to Carbon-connect that serves to incubate climate protection projects in Switzerland, the DACH region[2] and globally. These projects include initiatives like planting trees or contributing to the conservation of forests in Brazil.

Differentiating Acer from competitors, the spirit of this cooperation was not to simply maintain the status quo or compete pricewise. Rather, Acer seeks to put a step forward and be a role model of corporate social responsibility, responding to feedback it has received from channel partners and supporting their sales presentations with demonstrable sustainability efforts.

In the light of Acers’ Project Humanity, aiming to reduce our footprint globally, Acer Switzerland believes this project delivers a clear message to Swiss partners, customers and stakeholders: Buy Acer and help to protect our environment.
