ASUS strives to design all its products to be environmentally friendly from the ground up. At each stage of the design process, a product goes through an optimization process to reduce waste, reduce the use of toxic materials, and use recycled materials where possible. Another innovative idea ASUS is incorporating into its designs is to try and make its products as easy to disassemble as possible, the idea being that they could then easily be refurbished, reused, or recycled.
At the beginning of every fiscal year, ASUS reviews its energy saving objectives from the previous year and sets targets for the coming year. Management's main approach to energy saving is replacing existing equipment with more energy efficient devices. The company also combats energy waste through routine equipment maintenance. On a regular basis the company looks at how it heats and cools its buildings, how it uses energy for lighting, and how it piece of equipment uses energy.
