Fire alarm systems make an important contribution to sustainability

Every fire in buildings or industrial facilities not only causes economic damage, but also harms the environment and can threaten life and health. For this reason alone, fire alarm systems make an important contribution to sustainability. But other aspects such as durability, flexibility or remote monitoring also ensure that Bosch systems protect the climate and resources.

AIoT video systems support sustainable business

AIoT video systems from Bosch are built to meet the demands of the future. This includes supporting companies on their journey to reduce CO2. We call this the Green Way promise. It is a unique cloud-based approach that ensures our solutions are designed to maximize convenience and minimize costly on-site visits, effectively reducing travel and CO2 emissions.

Our team for sustainable packaging

When developing safety and security systems for sustainable buildings, you should ensure that the packaging is environmentally friendly. Our packaging team in Ovar, Portugal, has been managing more than 500 projects all over the world. With innovative packaging concepts, they make a large positive impact on efficiency, the environment, and people. We talked to the team members about what drives them, what they have already achieved, and what they are currently working on.

Whether in transportation and industry, universities, hotels, or shopping malls, public address and voice alarm systems help people stay informed and feel safe and comfortable. PRAESENSA from Bosch goes one step further.

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.
