How high is the proportion of recycled materials in Bosch eBike components?
The use of materials with recycled content is considered in every development project and is critically examined, particularly with regard to product requirements and safety standards; we will continue to drive this forward in the future. As of today, the share of recycled materials in eBike components is still low. The material mix in our products is designed for the specific application and thus optimized to meet high requirements in terms of reliability and reproducibility. In the case of packaging materials also, we examine how the material mix can be designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The aim is to reduce the use of disposable packaging and to continuously increase the use of sustainable packaging materials and reusable packaging, for example. One example can be found in our packaging strategy. Since September 2020, our drives have been delivered to our customers in molded fiber packaging.
