“We are very pleased to see Acer’s continued presence on the DJSI Emerging Markets Index and FTSE4Good Emerging Index,” said Richard Lai, Corporate Sustainability Officer at Acer. “But just as important as our continued listing on these indices is the headway we have made in new areas beyond our traditional strengths in Supply Chain Management.”

In addition to continuing to receive high marks in the areas of Supply Chain Management and Climate Change, this year Acer ranked in the top (100th) percentile within the DJSI Emerging Markets Index for Policy Influence, Privacy Protection, Environmental Reporting, and Social Reporting. Among the areas that Acer performed well in, Policy Influence was a new assessment criterion that was added in 2017, which focuses on companies’ transparent disclosure of their policy influence activities.

The new criterion was highlighted by the publisher of the DJSI, RobecoSAM, as a material issue that it believes deserves more attention from ESG and investment analysts.

Acer was also listed on the FTSE4Good Emerging Index for the second consecutive year where it was cited for performing especially well in the areas of Environmental Supply Chain and Social Supply Chain.
