Green Headquarters

Bosch in Singapore

Bosch has been present in Singapore since 1923. It is represented in Singapore by four companies - Robert Bosch (SEA) Pte Ltd, Bosch Rexroth Pte Ltd, Bosch Packaging Technology Pte Ltd and BSH Home Appliances Pte Ltd.

Renewable energies, environmentally compatible construction, and economical use of natural resources all contribute to the continuing reduction of CO2 emissions at Bosch locations. The regional headquarters for southeast Asia that opened in Singapore in 2010 are a good example. They are not only equipped with a photovoltaic system, but also feature a mobile sunscreen on the façade that cuts the amount of heat getting into the building by up to 25 percent, making the need for cooling relatively low. The State of Singapore’s Ministry of Construction awarded the location the Platinum rating, the highest under its “Green Mark” program. This certifies that the building’s annual energy requirements are at least 30 percent below the legally prescribed limit in Singapore. The building also won the national Clean Energy Program's Solar Pioneer Award.

The green headquarters in Singapore are just one example of how Bosch ensures efficient use of energy in its construction activities. The new research center in Renningen, for example, boasts its own membrane treatment plant for treating service water. In addition, rainwater is used for cooling the building. These measures enable savings of 30,000 cubic meters of drinking water a year.

In January 2013, Bosch brought a biomass heating plant online in Rodez, France, that provides an average of 90 percent of the heating required. Furthermore, various company locations use the waste heat generated by their production processes to reduce their energy requirements.
