Acer Unveils “Conscious Technology” Vision to Help Tackle Climate Change

“We must speed up the adoption of renewable energy to fight climate change caused by global warming. In 2022, the Acer Group reached 44% of renewable electricity usage. To reach our goal of 100%, solar and wind power utilization in energy storage technology will be the key. We are taking decisive actions that advocate circular economies and providing solutions that minimize the negative impacts on our environment.” ~Jason Chen, Acer Chairman and CEO
Acer Chairman and CEO Jason Chen

Acer Inc. (TWSE: 2353) unveiled today, at a press conference in Dubai, its “Conscious Technology” vision for technology designed and made with consideration for the future. It also shared its ongoing climate efforts, while a showcase of two new energy storage solutions and a climate exhibition featuring technology and product concepts were made open to the public.
Acer has joined the RE100 initiative and committed to sourcing 100% renewable electricity by 2035. It has also pledged to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. As one of the world’s top ICT companies, Acer seeks to amplify positive impacts on the environment through united actions; 60% of its critical suppliers have committed to RE100 or set science-based carbon reduction targets (SBT). Acer has set a goal to use 20-30% post-consumer recycled plastic in its computer and monitors by 2025, for which 17% use was achieved in 2022.
Some of the efforts that Acer shared at the event include its Vero line of products made with a high percentage of recycled materials, the Project Humanity initiative that educates and unites its employees around the world to take greener actions, and the Earthion platform that further brings together its supply chain partners including their employees to tackle environmental challenges through innovative and integrated solutions. Reducing Acer’s sea logistics emissions with biofuel and researching sustainable packaging materials with manufacturing partners are some of the initiatives under Earthion.
As part of its net-zero commitment, Acer is expanding its presence in the energy storage industry, offering solutions across the supply chain, from household to industrial use, manufacturing to application, and front-of to behind-the-meter solutions to contribute to the energy transition. With its investment in battery cell technologies, the company unveiled new energy storage solutions that extends its portfolio.
The exhibition, themed “Conscious Technology for a Brighter Tomorrow,” speaks of Acer’s ongoing climate efforts and the technology designed and made with consideration for the future. Showcased at Alserkal Avenue in Dubai, the exhibition highlights products and services under four lifestyle concepts:
  Concept for Working – An on-demand subscription service to Acer’s vast product portfolio with subscription package upgrades, services and repairs that can be made available with the click of a button. Customers can actively become part of a system that stretches the life of a digital device, lessening the use of new resources.
● Concept for Learning – Computer hardware and software that help schools reduce their carbon footprint. Students can learn in a climate positive environment using refurbished laptops along with tools to enable conscious use.
● Concept for Moving – A network of mobility stations with charging hubs, nimble e-bikes and e-scooters available to ease journeys, along with tools such as data-informed urban planning and prediction of micro-mobility infrastructure, helping to increase transportation access for more people and support infrastructure planning within smart cities.
● Concept for Living – A hyper-compatible system with a mobile app that enables the use of both existing and new smart appliances to make homes more climate resilient. The app lets users manage their energy consumption more efficiently and increase visibility on the energy distribution of appliances.
The exhibition is open to the public from December 7-12 at 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., at Alserkal Avenue, the arts center of Dubai, where visitors can learn more about Acer’s environmental commitments and solutions, and new concepts for sustainable living.

Street sweepers, garbage collectors, and pedicab drivers' routines took an extraordinary turn when SM Malls in Valenzuela, Sangandaan, and Grand Central, including SM Savemore Malabon, orchestrated a heartwarming surprise for these essential community workers.

These essential street workers, whose work contributions often go unnoticed in the daily hustle and bustle, received a special Christmas treat from SM. Christmas packs, brimming with essential items and delightful goodies, were distributed across various barangays in the CAMANAVA area. The initiative not only aimed to spread Christmas joy but also to recognize and appreciate the dedicated individuals who contribute tirelessly to the cleanliness and functionality of the cities.

SM City Grand Central took the lead by distributing a total of 400 Christmas cheers to pedicab drivers and other transport groups in Barangay 35, Maypajo, Caloocan. Meanwhile, SM Center Sangandaan and SM Savemore Malabon added to the festive spirit by generously handing out 190 and 120 Christmas Cheers to street clearing personnel and jeepney drivers in Malabon, Navotas, and Caloocan.

A joint project of SM Foundation Inc. and SM Supermalls, SM Christmas Cheers aims to give love and happiness to the communities the mall serves. This heartwarming event was also made possible through the collaborative efforts of SM Cares, SM affiliates, and dedicated SM volunteers.

As the holiday spirit continues to thrive, SM City Grand Central and SM Center Sangandaan will spread more joy by conducting rounds of gift-giving for underprivileged children at the Tahanang Mapagkalinga Social Development Center on December 19, 2023.

Transforming Banks in the Philippines for a Digital Future Through Coexistence

“Embracing cutting-edge technology is a clear imperative for banks seeking to thrive in the digital era. The adoption of a modern core banking system and a comprehensive infrastructure overhaul necessitates the strategic concept of coexistence, which proves to be a highly effective path to success. Nevertheless, meticulous planning for coexistence becomes increasingly critical as the scale of the bank expands." ~Aman Sud, Chief Growth Officer, ASEAN, Publicis Sapient

The Philippines' financial services sector is on the brink of a significant change, driven by the rapid shift to digital processes and the embrace of open finance, as stated by the Central Bank of the Philippines. One of the central bank's objectives for the current year is to achieve a 50% digitalization rate for retail payments and to facilitate the formal financial system onboarding of 70% of adult Filipinos.
With nearly universal mobile penetration and three-quarters of the population with access to the internet, the Philippines’ young and tech-savvy consumer base is driving a surge in demand for financial services.
Alongside factors such as a rapidly growing adult population, ongoing regulatory support in promoting financial inclusion, and the introduction of new digital technologies, the stage is being set for accelerated growth. Philippines banks can now move away from legacy infrastructure that constrains innovation and prevents them from providing the real-time, personalized banking products and experiences that customers have come to expect.
Each bank will have its own unique and complex data landscapes, so there is no one-size-fits-all model when it comes to coexistence. Here are some common lessons that banks’ IT and delivery teams can keep in mind on their coexistence journey.


#1: Embrace coexistence and set up the right team for the job.

Recognize coexistence and actively plan for it during your transition state or states.

Set up a central team of experts to ensure comprehensive planning and decision-making. This may be distinct and separate from the business and technical teams that define the target state operating model and architecture. This central team will lay the required implementation path, working through each challenge and finding answers for the coexistence situations as they arise.
Having the appropriate senior sponsorship to smooth the working process across the many teams involved is necessary to keep the program and its stakeholders aligned while moving forward with a holistic change-management strategy.
#2: Use technology to better support coexistence
Gone are the days of stitching together a manual process which would inevitably place additional pressure on operations colleagues. Instead, utilize the program’s target architecture to enable technology-centered coexistence. Banks can be safe knowing that any interim builds can more easily be changed as you transition from one state to another with a more loosely coupled architecture. For example, a dedicated service could be stood up to serve as the ‘control center’ for managing coexistence indicators across various systems of record.
#3: Investing tactically in legacy can help but remember to plan for legacy decommissioning.
Changes to the source system or data are needed to enable a successful transformation. For example, additional flags or tags may be required on legacy accounts to indicate which have been migrated. Plan these changes early with the teams supporting the legacy core to ensure that things go smoothly. Equally important is that there are concrete steps in place within the migration plan to decommission the legacy estate, to ensure stakeholder buy-in on the journey, and to recognize the full benefits of the core modernization program.
On their way to a new digital core, banks can position themselves to embrace the concept of coexistence by adopting the right tools, adopting a well-planned approach, and adopting a strategic attitude. In the near future, the banks that are successful in this modernization path will become the leaders.
