The Bosch Group is a leading global supplier of technology and services in the areas of automotive and industrial technology, consumer goods, and building technology. The Bosch credo is to provide technological answers to ecological questions. To this end, Bosch invests some 45 percent of its research and development budget in technologies that help protect the environment and conserve resources, and generates a good third of its sales with such products.
Besides this strategy, Bosch carries in its historical values the value of Trust, as said Robert Bosch, the founder of the company: “I have always acted according to the principle that I would rather lose money than trust.” Naturally, Bosch CSR strategy is built on this value, along with fairness and openness. Nonetheless, with 300 sites through out the world, communicating exhaustively on the Group’s best practices and all its indicators could be a waste of time for both the reader and the company. Bosch’s CSR department credo is therefore to communicate little but always on purpose.
