Live sustainable #LikeABosch
For us, sustainability is the framework within which we consistently act in an economically, ecologically, and socially responsible manner. That's why our innovations not only make our products better and better, but also more and more sustainable. With our power tools, you can actively contribute to a much more environmentally friendly lifestyle and greater resource preservation. With #LikeABosch, we show you how easy it is. Together, we will do it. Every small step counts when it comes to making a positive contribution to protecting our environment.
Bosch Home & Garden measuring tools: as simple as always. More sustainable than ever.
Innovative Bosch Home & Garden measuring tools are designed to make your DIY fantasies a reality – easily and precisely. We give you peace of mind by offering you high-quality measuring tools that are simple to use. But we’re also focused on the protection of our planet – just like you. That’s why for our new range of measuring tools – launched in September 2023 – we have taken a more sustainable approach. Now, at every step of product creation, we are limiting our use of resources while at the same time ensuring that you get the best choice for your DIY projects.
More sustainable than ever: This not only applies to all of our measuring tools, but also to the production of our new video.

Our sustainability approach
At Bosch Home & Garden, we want to use sustainable innovations to protect the environment in our global business activities and processes and we want to drive change in our business sector. That is why we are constantly analysing and reviewing our entire value chain in order to keep introducing further improvement measures.
A circular economy is a self-contained system in which the entire value chain of production should successively reduce all waste, emissions, and energy waste to zero in a resource-efficient manner. The reuse of recycled materials, product longevity, and maintenance and repair of older equipment play an important role in this. In 2020, we developed a circular economy strategy that takes into account environmental and social impacts along the entire value chain. In 2021, we are now systematically analysing the main materials used in Bosch products and developing an action plan to strengthen the circular economy.
Bosch as a brand enjoys a great deal of trust when it comes to reliability and high quality. To ensure that this remains the case in the future, we test our products under the highest performance requirements and loads. With important innovations such as Syneon technology, we want to ensure that our customers enjoy our products for a very long time. Unfortunately, this cannot be said in general terms, as many factors depend on the individual use and handling of the respective customer.
Bosch has one of the largest cross-brand 18V battery systems from leading manufacturers in the world with the POWER FOR ALL ALLIANCE and offers solutions for the entire home. Our vision is to provide our users with ONE battery that can be used for all applications around the home. We would like to include many other manufacturers in our battery system in the future as well.

Yes the animals in the pictures are real. All the necessary animal welfare clearances were obtained before starting the photo shooting. None of the animals were harmed during the photo shoot.
If you want to be grammatically very correct, it should be "Live sustainably", because it is an adverb. But especially in US-American English, people like to do without an adverb colloquially. Especially in the musical sphere. We also wanted to communicate in a uniform way: see BSH Film and Bosch Corporate Film, where "Live sustainable like a Bosch" is already used. For these reasons, we decided to use "Live sustainable like a Bosch" for power tools too.
