Introducing ASUS Carbon Partner Services to support sustainability goals today and tomorrow
Sustainability has become a key driver in decision-making as customers pressure organizations to act on environmental impact and ESG initiatives.1 With ASUS Carbon Partner Services, ASUS supports customers with a flexible and transparent end-to-end solution for offsetting emissions associated with their ASUS products to support their sustainability goals with purchase.
ASUS Carbon Partner Services accompany sustainable products from ASUS, and were developed to help businesses reduce their carbon emission. ExpertBook B9 OLED exemplifies these efforts as the first magnesium-lithium ASUS laptop to employ Thixomolding — a manufacturing technology that reduces waste by up to 29% and shortens manufacturing time by up to 75%. Made with up to 70% post-industrial recycled metal and packaged in materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ExpertBook B9 OLED is ENERGY STAR® certified and can reduce carbon emissions — exceeding the ENERGY STAR energy-efficiency standard by 44%

Sustainability is a core part of our business, and we’re using our deep technological expertise and collaborative spirit to become an end-to-end partner supporting businesses’ ESG achievement.
