We accept our actions must be in accordance with the environment and that we have a responsibility to the community at large, including future generations. For this reason, we must observe respect for people’s health and safety, practice an economic use of resources and work towards a more natural and cleaner environment as a basic principle of our business policy.
It is the task of all Bosch associates to help protect the well-being and safety of people and the environment, as well as maintain strict compliance with all laws and regulations pertaining to these issues. As a corporate leader, it is our task to recognize if such dangers exist and undertake appropriate actions to correct them.
At Bosch, we pledge to develop and manufacture products that are safe, eco-friendly and economical. Our products are designed to reduce burdens to the environment during their everyday use, as well as during their subsequent recycling and disposal.
We design processes to ensure people’s health and safety take priority and that negative effects on the environment are kept to a minimum. We also encourage this spirit among our suppliers and economic partners.
5. Continuous Improvement
We review our processes and our corporate activities on a regular basis, as well as measure their effects on people and on the environment. We do this to identify opportunities for improvement and ensure the ongoing effectiveness of our programs to protect people’s health and reduce environmental impact.
A tradition of commitment.
