Conserving resources on the production front

Environmental management systems like those in place at all BSH sites for more than a decade now are an indispensable basis for efficient, environmentally friendly production. Equally crucial, however, are the plant technology employed, and the regulation of processes and utilization levels at the factories. As long ago as the 1990s, BSH opted for energy-efficient solutions for its production activities, and consistently applied these at its new facilities throughout the various regions. The marked reductions achieved relative to production quantities provides evidence that there is still scope for cutting energy and water consumption in the manufacturing processes: Thanks to many individual measures adopted in the factories, but in particular through increased productivity, it has been possible to reduce specific energy and water consumption worldwide by ten percent compared with the previous year.
