ASUS to recycle 20 percent of its global e-waste by 2025

 ASUS recently announced a plan to recycle 20 percent of its global electronic waste (e-waste) by the year 2025.
 
Currently, ASUS has joint ventures in 14 countries, which entails 70 percent of its global business, with qualified local recyclers to help recycle e-waste. The company recycled close to 11,000 tons of e-waste in 2016, representing a 12.2 percent recovery ratio of total products sold.
 
In celebration of the June 5 World Environment Day, ASUS announced its plan to achieve a 15 percent recovery rate by 2020 and then increasing to 20 percent by 2025. The company also hosted a series of events around the world to promote recycling and raise environmental awareness. One of the goals of the events is to collect 100 tons of e-waste before the end of July.
 
In May this year, ASUS established a new recycling operation in India. Throughout the country, 40 different recycling collection stations were opened, offering recycling services such as free on-site pickup and a recycling hotline.
 
In Europe, North America, China, Taiwan and Japan, ASUS has ensured that all its recycling programs have been approved by the local governments or met international standards. The programs also offer services such as free collection and waste disposal.
 
ASUS conducts annual audits involving three independent audit agencies to ensure that its local recycling programs are run responsibly and ethically.
