Clear strategy for more sustainability

Bosch’s sustainability strategy is based on concrete objectives in all focus areas. We have for many years now been consistently working to realize those objectives.

Graphic of the Bosch sustainability target vision: The six dimensions of the target vision are arranged in a hexagon. The climate action dimension includes the topics "reducing CO₂ emissions" and "energy efficiency and renewable energies". The water dimension includes the topics “water scarcity” and “water quality”. The circular economy dimension includes the topics of “materials efficiency” and “second life”. The diversity dimension includes the topics “equity” and “inclusion”. The human rights dimension includes the issues of “responsibility” and “transparency”. The health dimension includes the topics of "occupational safety" and "substances of concern". In the middle of the hexagon it says “New Dimensions Sustainability 2025”.
The target vision “New Dimensions — Sustainability 2025.”

Sustainability is frequently defined as a balance of economic, environmental, and social aspects. At the same time, sustainability has become an established concept on capital markets under the abbreviation ESG (environment, social, governance). Our comprehensive understanding of sustainability combines both of these approaches. It shapes our sustainability management, provides clear orientation at all levels, and ensures that our actions are effective. Accordingly, by acting in an economically, environmentally, and socially responsible manner, we want to improve people’s quality of life and safeguard the livelihoods of present and future generations.

Our “New Dimensions — Sustainability 2025” target vision translates this ambition into concrete terms. Derived from the megatrends affecting our company and the findings of our materiality analysis, these objectives set the frame for our activities in the years ahead.

Carbon neutral since 2020

The Bosch Group with more than 400 locations worldwide has been climate neutral (scopes 1 and 2) since 2020. But that's not all: we want to shape climate action beyond our immediate sphere of influence and systematically reduce upstream and downstream emissions (scope 3), which we aim to reduce by 15 percent by 2030.

Sustainability Highlights from the UK

One site saves 71 million litres of water

At the Thermotechnology location in Worcester, a new water-recycling system is helping ensure efficiency and resource conservation in manufacturing. Every year, the location needs around 110 million litres of water in research and development, in its long-term testing facilities, and in production. The new recycling system makes it possible to reuse cooling water from the production facilities. The system saves twelve metric tons of CO2 and around 71 million litres of water annually – which corresponds approximately to the water consumption of 650 households.

Worcester Bosch teams up with the Good Soil Trust

The Good Soil Trust aims to provide a safe, family environment for people who are struggling in life. Worcester Bosch now donate wooden pallets and crates to the Trust, that were used for shipping products to the factory. The wood is then repurposed for compost bins, raised vegetable beds, and even a boat building project!
