Bosch kitchen appliances are committed to water and energy efficiency. In addition to manufacturing energy efficient dishwashers, as well as ENERGY STAR certified compact laundry, refrigeration and ventilation products, Bosch continues to develop new innovations that minimize the consumption of precious resources. This dedication led Bosch to be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the 2016 ENERGY STAR Emerging Technology Award.
This award is given annually to innovative technologies that meet rigorous performance criteria by reducing energy use and lowering greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features or functionality. The award recognizes the Bosch 24-inch stainless steel and glass door refrigerators in the Innovative Refrigerant Systems category as the best low global warming (GWP) refrigerant systems that help protect the environment, while offering additional energy savings. Bosch was selected for its use of R600a refrigerant, a more efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to the widely-used R134a refrigerant. Bosch has been an ENERGY STAR partner since 2007, offering appliances that are making a positive impact in our world.
