We care about our environment: We take on responsibility for protecting the climate
Discover how Bosch Healthcare Solutions is going CO₂-neutral with the Vivalytic cartridge consumer product.
Green agenda: Bosch is commited to sustainability
At Robert Bosch GmbH, contributing to people’s well-being and to environmental and climate protection has a long tradition. In view of the increased challenges we face from climate change, Bosch has set itself a significantly more ambitious target in relation to climate protection: At corporate level, Bosch is introducing research, production and administration processes from 2020.
This means that we want to make emissions in our direct sphere of influence carbon neutral. The focus is placed above all on energy efficiency and generating energy ourselves from renewable sources.
Bosch Healthcare Solutions is pursuing these goals
As a fully-owned Bosch subsidiary, we at Bosch Healthcare Solutions are responsibe for implementing this project from 2020, with a focus on carbon-neutral research and administration. For our production, we only use green electricity.
We want to make a further contribution to climate protection with the carbon-neutral positioning of the Vivalytic Cartridge.
As a basis for CO₂ neutrality, we have examined CO₂ emissions over the entire life cycle of our consumer products, from production through to disposal. In addition to the raw materials, we also factored in CO₂ consumption during production, packaging, transportation, and practical application.
The functional elements on the disposable cartridge are controlled automatically. Many previously manual processes are carried out fully automatically. Native samples can be added to the cartridge without preparation. This significantly simplifies the entire workflow.
In order to obtain correct measurement results and to guarantee optimum hygiene, the Vivalytic Cartridges are currently intended exclusively for single use. Multiple use would, of course, be desirable from a sustainability point of view, but this is currently not feasible. We have therefore opted for offsetting measures applying the Gold Standard.
