Acer invites Malaysians to make their Green Mark
Acer today invites Malaysians to make their green mark by choosing to do their own small part for the earth. This call is in line with Acer’s sustainability efforts and the belief that aggregation of every positive action can create a larger impact.
Walking the talk, Acer announced the adoption of 15 trees in Taman Tugu, a 66-acre green lung in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Five partners (representatives from Kitamen, Microsoft, National Cancer Society of Malaysia, PIKOM and Team Lugiami) have immediately pledged support for Acer Malaysia’s efforts in response to the invitation to “Make Your Green Mark”. Alongside these initiatives, Acer also offers an option for Malaysians to make their green mark with the eco-friendly laptop – Acer Aspire Vero.
“Acer Malaysia is committed to sustainability. We want to do more as a responsible company and corporate citizen; this includes our response to climate change. Project Humanity was introduced by Acer as a company-wide initiative to raise awareness on this urgent issue and we hope more organisations, partners, and customers will join us in contributing towards positive changes. I would like to record appreciation to the five organizations who have voiced their support for Acer’s efforts for the earth through video pledges,” said Johnson Seet, Director of Consumer Business, Product and Marketing of Acer Malaysia.
In 2017, Project Humanity began at the individual level, seeking to inspire employees to propose new ideas in their professional capacity and collectively contribute to the goals of reducing, reusing, recycling, and repurposing. This year, Acer started “Earthion”, which is a merger of the words “Earth + Mission”, as a platform to bring together the supply chain partners to develop innovative and integrated, sustainability-focused solutions. The driving force behind Earthion is our belief that mutual collaboration can effectively create positive impact for the environment.
Aspire Vero – More than A Greener Product
With its stylish design, Acer Aspire Vero (AV15-51) provides an option for customers who are looking for more sustainable operations. Made of 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in its chassis, each Aspire Vero saves on around 21% CO2 emissions. Its keycaps contain 50% PCR plastic. Aspire Vero’s thoughtful design helps eliminate needless waste by making it easy to disassemble, repair, upgrade and recycle the computer or its components.
Furthermore, Aspire Vero ships in a box made from 80-85% recycled paper pulp, and plastics for adapter protection is reduced by using paper sleeves instead. Manifesting Acer’s earnestness about eco-friendliness, all graphics on the shipping box are printed with soy ink. Acer made the laptop chassis contemporary, doing away with painting and thus, further reducing the impact on the environment. Besides this, the award-winning 100% recyclable packaging can be repurposed as a DIY laptop stand. Aspire Vero’s laptop bag and sheet between the keyboard and screen are also made with 100% industrial recycled plastic.
With a 99% recyclable 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, Acer Aspire Vero is powered by up to 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics enabling world-class performance for users when they need it. Users also have the option to select Eco+ mode in Acer’s new VeroSense™ software for greater energy efficiency and battery life. Features like Wi-Fi 6, an RJ-45 port, an HDMI port, a Type-C USB port and two Type-A USB ports make for a more reliable and convenient computing experience, while Acer TrueHarmony™ and Acer PurifiedVoice™ with AI noise reduction allow for crystal-clear conference calls.
Running Windows 11 and pre-installed with Microsoft Office Home & Student 2021 with lifetime license, Aspire Vero will be available selected Acer official online stores and Acer authorized resellers nationwide, from RM3,399.
