Green Technology is the Bosch roadmap for sustainability, efficiency and transparency, especially when it comes to resources and energy. This guiding principle underpins all our work in all sectors, from environment-sensitive production methods to researching new, energy-efficient technologies.
The Green Technology inside
This signet denotes products that focus on energy and water efficiency while achieving top performance based on Bosch technologies – and, like all Bosch products, have been manufactured with the aim of minimizing their impact on the environment. The signet stands for the resource-efficiency of our products – quite simply, for their ‘Green Technology’.
To find out more about "Green Technology inside" and calculate your individual energy saving potential.
Bosch has always taken its responsibility towards man and nature seriously. This creates an obligation and incentive to develop resource-efficient household appliances. ‘Green Technology’ can create the potential to not only improve the future but also our quality of life today. Our appliances are manufactured with respect and sensitivity to the environment and designed to operate more efficiently than our previous models.
As a leading industrial company, we are conscious of our responsibility towards society and future generations. We act in harmony with our environment with the aim of preserving values like trust and integrity, promoting health and treating the environment and natural resources with due care. In 2008, we were awarded the German Sustainability Award in acknowledgement of this commitment.
We deploy ground-breaking technological innovations to develop some of the most economical and resource-efficient household appliances in the world. Our ActiveWater dishwashers, for instance, considerably reduce both water and electricity consumption in comparison to our previous models, while ActiveAir Technology, found in the EcoLogixx 7, dries laundry so efficiently, it consumes up to 55% less energy than our previous models. Likewise, our fridges, offer up to 2.5 star energy efficiency, rating them amongst the most efficient in their class. And these are no exceptions – approximately 40% of the patents we file are for products designed with the aim of minimizing their impact on the environment.
Our actions are driven by integrity. Our trusting relationship with customers, employees and suppliers is built on honesty and openness. This also includes a policy devoted to information transparency: we provide clear, understandable information and facts to assist in decision-making. The ‘Green Technology’ signet, for example, draws attention to the particular ‘Green Technology’ used in our individual products, specifies the relevant savings, special efficiency of operation and manufacturing process.
