Bosch Global to be carbon neutral from 2020

Bosch Global to be carbon neutral from 2020

Bosch is to be fully carbon-neutral as early as next year. Bosch has over 400 locations worldwide made up of engineering, manufacturing and administrative facilities, and none of these will leave a carbon footprint from the start of the next decade.

This will make Bosch the first major industrial enterprise to achieve this ambitious goal in a little over a year.

When it comes to the climate, words are not enough. Companies need to aim for carbon neutrality, here and now.
— Dr Volkmar Denner, Chairman of the Board of Management

Alto Energy is now carbon neutral!

As a business we feel it is our responsibility to lead by example, and as such we have taken steps to reduce our impact on the environment. Here’s what we’ve done so far:

  1. We occupy a building with solar panels on the roof, which drastically reduces our electrical consumption.

  2. We heat our office space with an IVT air-to-air heat pump, which provides very efficient heating. Except for really hot days, we tend to not use the cooling too much.

  3. We have replaced our warehouse lighting with high-efficiency LED lights.

  4. We have a fleet of efficient diesel-engine vans. This is our biggest challenge from an emissions perspective. The nature of our business means that engineers are driving around the country. Electric vans designed for long distances are not available to the market yet, so the best we can do is plan our journeys as efficiently as possible, and ensure we always have the most efficient diesel engines every time we renew our vehicles.


Carbon Offsetting

We have assessed our total carbon impact as a business, which comes to 45.1 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum. We have decided to offset this carbon with Carbon Footprint Ltd ( to ensure that we are a carbon neutral business.

Over the next few weeks we will be working towards achieving the Carbon Neutral Organisation certificate.
