“We are Bosch” — our mission statement

We are motivated by the desire to develop products that are “Invented for life,” that spark enthusiasm, that improve quality of life, and that help conserve natural resources. Our “We are Bosch” mission statement reflects this. It summarizes our values, our strengths, and our strategic orientation.

The mission is based on seven central values, which shape our corporate culture – ranging from a focus on the future and earnings to cultural diversity. Responsibility and sustainability are part of this set of values and thus of our actions.

We take responsibility

For us, sustainability means securing the company’s long-term success while at the same time protecting the natural resources on which present and future generations depend. Ecology is thus a driver of innovation. At the same time, we demonstrate a particularly high level of corporate social responsibility — both within the company and beyond.

Hand in hand: entrepreneurial thinking and social commitment

As a privately owned company, we act independently of the stock markets. Through Robert Bosch Stiftung, a charitable foundation, our profits are used to benefit society, the environment, and future generations — sustainably and for the long-term.

Our history

In 1886, Robert Bosch founded the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart. This was the birth of today‘s globally operating company. Right from the start, it was characterized by innovative strength and social commitment.
