The new target vision

Bosch strongly believes that a social and ecological balance is needed to do business successfully in the long-term. For this reason, the company aims to secure its business success in a way that preserves resources for current and future generations.

With a new target vision, Bosch is now defining ambitious goals that it plans to achieve by 2025, and is focusing its activities even more on solving the challenges society faces.

In the future, Bosch will focus on the following six megatrends: climate, energy, water, urbanisation, globalisation, and health. Each key issue includes two central aspects and medium-term targets.

Bosch Sustainability Strategy

Carbon neutral by 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!
