Bosch employees get ready for the future in the School of Energy Efficiency

In this day of rapid consumption of natural resources, greenhouse gas emission generated in energy production and energy consumption processes is one of the main causes of global warming and climate change.

With reference to the fact that we import 75% of the energy we consume in Turkey from abroad, reducing the energy bill and productive usage of energy in order to decrease foreign-source dependency of our country in energy become increasingly important.

Being aware of the great importance of some measures to be taken in buildings and small changes in energy consumption patterns for a more liable future, Bosch organizes several entertaining and informative activities to call the energy efficiency issue to the attention of employees in the diesel and gasoline systems factory in Bursa.

Producing “invented for life”, Bosch Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş’s Diesel and Gasoline Systems factory celebrated the National Energy Efficiency Week with various activities. Awareness-raising trainings for the employees continue in the School of Energy Efficiency which was opened in the last year’s Energy Efficiency week. Training programs are organized every Wednesday in the School of Energy Efficiency where 900 people have attended to date.

Another entertaining application brought forward to draw attention to the energy efficiency issue in the Diesel and Gasoline Systems factory of Bosch Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. was the Energy Bicycle. Energy Bicycle was presented in all locations in order to express the value of the energy and how hard it is to produce energy. In the activity which was conducted with participation of 1,400 employees, everyone who used the bicycle experienced that producing energy is much harder than to use it efficiently.

Moreover, 1750 Bosch employees participated in the quiz contest named “Who Wants to Use His/Her Energy Efficiently?” and 130 Bosch employees attended the “How much does a kilogram of Watt cost?” informative seminar organized to improve the energy awareness in Bosch.
