For the Bosch Group, sustainability means securing the company’s long-term success while at the same time helping protect the environment for current and future generations. Against this backdrop, we consider addressing ecological issues an engine of innovation.
In its quest to strike a balance between economic, ecological, and social concerns, Bosch focuses on four sustainability-related areas of activity.
With annual targets and systematic environmental management, we are reducing our consumption of resources and producing less waste at our locations around the world. When it comes to audits and the “Bosch Code of Business Conduct,” we also involve our suppliers.
Bosch has defined processes to further improve the safety of its products and services and to be able to react quickly. The Bosch Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) is the main point of contact for external safety and security researchers, partners, and customers wishing to report safety-related information about Bosch products. Anyone who has identified a potential vulnerability or safety and security incident in a Bosch product or service can contact PSIRT.
We promote a corporate culture based on respect for associates. It allows them to reach their full potential regardless of their background, age, or gender. Our diversity initiative is an important pillar of our human resources policy. We also place a great deal of importance on occupational safety and health protection.
Our commitment to society is part of our sustainability strategy. Here, our activities focus mainly on education in regions close to our locations: from supporting up-and-coming scientists to the long-term support of educational projects in disadvantaged regions or neighborhoods.
