Carbon Footprint, High

Their main objective is to reduce environmental footprint in all areas of the value chain. This includes both improving the material mix of our products and reducing emissions and energy consumption.

Since 2020, they have been developing and manufacturing in a CO₂-neutral manner at all their premises worldwide.

Also, they offset any other unavoidable CO₂ emissions with carbon credits. In 2022, the Bosch reduced its compensation share to 0.7 million metric tons.

Ecological Impact, High

Their appliances help in many ways to make everyday life sustainable. By saving water, energy and detergent or avoiding food waste, consumers can both save money and act sustainably at home.

In addition, the proportion of recycled materials in our products is increasing and the design is becoming more and more modular.

Energy Consumption, High

Between 2015 and 2017, B/S/H saved 25 million kWh in energy consumption in production and thus 40,000 t CO2 emissions. Around 13,000 t of this comes from the use of photovoltaics and 3,300 t from the use of biomass/district heating.

In 2022, B/S/H saved around 33.4 GWh of energy with more than 230 energy efficiency measures worldwide.

BlueMovement is contributing to the long-term conservation of resources and a growing sustainability offer in the company.

Saving Levels, High
