Green buildings are the future

Sustainability is also playing an increasingly important role in buildings – for owners, operators and tenants. Particularly efficient operation lowers energy consumption, reduces costs and protects the climate. In addition, smart building automation increases not only efficiency, but also comfort and safety – for sustainably satisfied users. We are a reliable partner in planning and implementing connected and integrated solutions from a single source - from intelligent building control technology and presence-dependent room automation to transparent energy data management.

Leading by Example

At the Bosch plant Bamberg hundreds of thousands of precision components, including spark plugs, sensors, high-pressure injection valves and common rail injectors, are produced daily. A great deal of energy is consumed in the process. Too much, Bosch concluded. The company therefore launched a project to modernize the cooling system and to enable a more energy-efficient production.

Is CO₂ neutrality in buildings achievable anywhere in the world?

YES.

Bosch proves it every day at its more than 400 locations*.

*Scope 1&2, 28.8% achieved with carbon offsets compared to base year (2018) emissions.

Since 2020, the Bosch Group with its more than 400 locations worldwide has been climate neutral (scopes 1 and 2). An independent auditing company has officially confirmed this. But that‘s not all: We want to shape climate action beyond our immediate sphere of influence and also systematically reduce upstream and downstream emissions (scope 3), which we aim to reduce by 15 percent by 2030.
