As an environmentally conscious and socially responsible company, we are committed to the careful and efficient use of natural resources and energy and to minimizing our impact on the environment - whether through the infrastructure we use or through our work processes. Our employees are the key to success. Their commitment, knowledge and resourcefulness drive Bossard forward and we take responsibility for their well-being. We work with relevant certifications and suppliers who comply with our business ethics, environmental and labor values and requirements.

We are aware of our responsibility and have anchored the issue of sustainability in our corporate strategy.

The following four topics are at the heart of our sustainability efforts:

  • Future-Proven Solutions
  • Empowered People
  • Fair Partnership
  • Reduced Footprint

Our long-term goal is: "Together we bring PROVEN PRODUCTIVITY and SUSTAINABILITY  to every assembly plant in the world"

You can read more about how we plan to sustainably advance the named topics and goals in our Sustainability Report.

 

  • Sustainable Model
  • Bossard Governance
  • UN Global Compact

“Proven Productivity” ‒ our business model and approach for a successful and sustainable future.

 

We help our customers exploit potentials. Avoiding future costs and optimizing individual products begins in the design phase and continues through the structuring of supply chains and on to the production processes. Time and time again, we find that this approach enables our customers to measurably increase their productivity. That is why we talk about “Proven Productivity”.This approach also helps reduce the environmental impact, because streamlining means using materials, energy, and production capacities carefully and in a targeted manner. Experience shows that the efficient use of resources, optimized product designs, and simplified logistics processes lead to less waste and lower emissions.

We acknowledge that organizational governance is a crucial factor in enabling  an organization to take responsibility for the impacts of its decisions and activities with regards to social responsibility. Within our own organization but also stretching to our business relationships.

Bossard has policies for work environment, environmental behavior and how we want to set responsible social footprints. In addition we have defined external requirements, code of conduct for suppliers.

Human rights and labor practices

Bossard respect and live human rights. Internally in our company as well as within the spheres of our interest. We distance ourselves from any kind of forced labor or compulsory labor as well as child labor. We believe in equal opportunities and non-discrimination and will work against any deviations from these principles. We stand for fair and decent conditions of employment in a healthy and safe working environment.

Business relationships

As a company we comply with all legal obligations. In addition our company governance includes social responsibility as defined in ISO 26000. It also means that we are not only responsible for our own actions, but also have a strong responsibility to directly influence our business relationships. We are buying worldwide and all our suppliers must meet high standards in business ethics, environmental behavior and labor welfare. We only do business when respect for people and environment is obvious and we monitor our business relations regularly. Suppliers are asked to sign Bossard's Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes rules for social and environmental responsibility.

Fair operating practices

Bossard works for anti-corruption, responsible involvement in the public and political sphere, fair competition, respect for property rights and socially responsible behavior. Our organization is trained in what fair operating practices means to us, our position and actions.

Environmental management

We know that our decisions and activities invariably have an impact on the environment. We protect the environment with our own processes and technologies by complying with local laws and under the standard ISO 14001. Environmental matters at the local, regional and global level are interconnected. We ask our sub-contractors to utilize similar systems to reduce the overall environmental impact. We keep updated with substances and materials which could have a harmful effect on humans or the environment. Substances identified by global and regional directives, such as e.g. REACH, RoHS and PFOS are immediately dealt with.

Community involvement

Bossard wishes to contribute to the development of the societies where Bossard is present. We act according to Bossard values always respecting the local culture and laws. The local communities are as important to Bossard as we are to them, providing job opportunities, co-operating with educational centers, the people who work and live there and any other local stakeholder.

We are proud to be a Signatory of the United Nations Global Compact, (Homepage | UN Global Compact) the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. This means we are committed to complying with the 10 principles The Ten Principles | UN Global Compact and are part of a movement that uses concrete solutions to drive sustainable development across a wide range of fields. The UN Global Compact and the principles mentioned cover human rights, labor standards, environmental protection, anti-corruption, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). They are guiding principles for shaping a sustainable society. We are fully aware of our responsibility and have embedded sustainability issues in our corporate strategy.
