Several German states have recently implemented environmental impact standards to try and proactively minimize pollution. Robert Bosch GmbH has signed an agreement with the state of Bavaria to follow those standards at all of their facilities in the state. Several Bosch sites were already members of the Bavarian pact and the rest of them will be taking additional actions to reduce energy use and emissions.
Bosch has announced some of the measures that they have been taking for many years, including putting heat pumps in new buildings and retrofitting older buildings when they are renovated. They have taken other actions such as adding insulation and ventilation systems with regenerative heat exchangers.
