Bosch Wins 2011 Energy Star® Sustained Excellence Award.

Bosch focuses on what matters most — quality and environmental responsibility. What you do in the spotlight isn’t the measure of your stature — it’s what you do when no one is watching that truly counts. That’s why Bosch engineers have challenged themselves to reduce the environmental impact of our products — without compromising performance. This commitment is reflected in superior quality appliances with sleek, smart design and efficient, practical innovations that use less energy and water. Not because the world demanded it. But because we believe it should.

Energy Star®

As the only U.S. manufacturer with all models ENERGY STAR® qualified in every major appliance category, it’s no wonder Bosch has been named the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for three years in a row. This award recognizes Bosch for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse emissions by manufacturing water- and energy-efficient appliances.

With the help of ENERGY STAR® appliances, Americans save $19 billion on energy bills annually and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to the equivalent of 29 million vehicles. ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency dedicated to helping consumers identify energy efficient appliances.

The annual energy bill for a typical single home is approximately $2,200.
