Responsibility at the touch of a button. Bosch home appliances.
All Bosch home appliances are manufactured with particular care for resources. Because we work completely sustainably in all areas. It starts before production and only ends when the packaging material has been recycled. You’ll recognise Bosch’s most efficient models by the “Green Technology inside” signet. With them, you can take responsibility for the environment at the touch of a button as you do the housework. And even Bosch’s most environmentally friendly home appliances are naturally still uncompromisingly powerful.
With Green Technology inside, we’re flying the flag for sustainability.
Around 40% of Bosch’s patent applications relate to environmental protection and the careful use of resources. Today, Bosch’s home appliances are amongst the most efficient and economical in the world. That’s good for the environment and for your wallet.
We don’t do things by halves. Except when it comes to saving water.
Have you ever tried to halve your water consumption? We have. Since 1990, we’ve been able to cut the water consumption of Bosch’s appliances by more than half.
Ingeniously packed, efficiently transported.
We save resources on transport, too. For example, we pack Bosch’s dishwashers so efficiently that we can now transport even more products at the same time. This not only reduces packaging matieral, it also saves on fuel and thereby cuts CO2 emissions.
For us, waste isn’t just rubbish.
Collecting and separating the production waste in Bosch’s factories is a matter of course. And now we also recycle 92% of it.
Discover some simple ways of protecting the environment!
Sustainability starts when you buy.
When buying a dishwasher, go for the lowest possible water consumption. Models that use 8-10 litres per wash cycle are a good average.
Half the load, twice the fun.
Programmes like “Half Load” are ideal for washing just a few dishes. That way, you save both money and energy.
You’ve never saved time this easily before.
Use a pressure cooker for everything that takes longer than 20 minutes to cook in a traditional saucepan, such as potatoes or stews. That way, you’ll cut your energy use by up to 30%. And your meals will be ready much faster.
Voilà – your new sous-chef: oven heat.
Switch off the oven a few minutes before the meal is ready. The heat of the oven will do the rest on its own.
Take a look. But don’t open up.
Avoid opening the oven door. Because even if you just check your roast briefly, around 10% of the heat inside will be lost.
A minor detail. A major effect.
Leave a gap as wide as your hand between the fridge and the wall. You’ll cut your power use by up to 10%.
Save power when thawing out.
Place frozen foods in the fridge to thaw. They give off cold to the fridge and thus save electricity.
Food gets cold on its own.
Do you pop the pasta in the fridge while it’s still steaming? Please don’t! Wait until food has cooled down before putting it in the fridge.
The right quantity for your wash.
Generally, it’s not a good thing to use your intuition when adding detergent. If too much is added, the machine has to rinse longer and uses more water. You should therefore always use the quantity recommended by the detergent manufacturer.
More is less here
Don’t wash items of clothing alone. An underloaded washing machine uses more power and water than a full one.
Energy savings non-stop.
Dry several laundry loads one after another. Then you’re making use of the heat that’s still in the dryer.
Separate things that don’t belong together.
Put lightweight clothing and heavy cottons or towels into the dryer separately. If they both go into the drum at the same time, the drying time and the power use will increase.
