Bosch in the United Kingdom



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 — and we have reached a first key milestone with carbon neutrality.*

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.”

We see sustainability as the balance between the economic, ecological and social dimensions of our business activities as part of responsible corporate governance.

We have summarized the focal points of our sustainability management in the “New Dimensions — Sustainability 2025” target vision. It describes six topic areas that set the framework for our activities in the coming years.

Facts and figures

Open and honest, comprehensive and transparent — that’s the benchmark for our sustainability reporting. After all, we want to be a partner in society who is not only responsible, but also trustworthy.

With our sustainability report, we make our actions transparent — comprehensively and comparably, in accordance with the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative.

Climate action at Bosch

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!

* Since 2020, the Bosch Group with its more than 400 locations worldwide has been climate neutral (scopes 1 and 2). The climate neutrality was achieved by using four levers: increasing energy efficiency, generating energy ourselves from renewable sources (new clean power), purchasing electricity from renewable sources (green electricity), and — as the last resort — using carbon credits to offset remaining CO₂ emissions. In 2022, remaining emissions of 0.7 million metric tons of CO₂ were offset by carbon credits. Scopes 1, 2, and 3 are used in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard.
