Where does Bosch eBike Systems obtain its raw materials?
Bosch eBike Systems does not source raw materials such as lithium, but buys them as part of the cells from lithium-ion cell suppliers. A key pillar of sustainability activities in the eBike sector is a transparent supply chain that enables comprehensive tracing of so-called critical raw materials. For example, comprehensive information on the supply chain is requested from our cell suppliers and traced back to raw material procurement. In general, our suppliers must meet strict requirements based on the principles of the UN Global Compact, the core labor standards of the International Labor Organization (ILO), and Bosch standards that in some cases go beyond these.
