Sustainability is realized in several ways at BBS: a clear commitment to the protection of our environment, which ultimately pays off.
The engineers at BBS pay close attention to sustainable design when planning and designing customer’s production equipment, which directly influences the choice of components and materials. In this way, the passive and active energy and resource consumption of a system can be significantly reduced in all phases of life. The conscious and economical use of media and energy contributes a further, not to be underestimated share when building production equipment under aspects of sustainability. A pleasing effect of all these efforts is the immediately realizable savings in the purchase and operation of a system.
But that's not all: in the end, BBS machines and systems also prove their worth in the manufacture of sustainable products such as LED lights, control systems for energy management in vehicles or test systems for energy storage systems and much more. State-of-the-art production and testing technology, global engineering and the use of up-to-date communication platforms are important components of the sustainability concept at BBS.
The focus of all our activities is always on people – whether employees, customers, consumers or just fellow human beings. Our motto is „People do something for people.”
Back in 2015, the United Nations (UN) adopted the 2030 Agenda: the global roadmap for the future, with the aim of enabling a decent life worldwide while preserving the natural foundations of life. Everyone is called upon to align their actions to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda.
BBS Automation explicitly supports all goals and demands of the Agenda 2030, focusing as an industrial company on the global areas as an international economic player.
3 Health and well-being - BBS produces automatic production systems in the field of medical technology / life science. In this way, we make a significant contribution to providing access to affordable medical products for all human beings. At the same time, BBS employees gain access to benefits and measures that improve the quality of life through appropriate programs.
5 Gender equality - BBS employees are paid fairly, with the so-called gender pay gap at zero. Diversity is anchored as a corporate goal at decision-maker level.
7 Affordable and clean energy - BBS uses renewable energies, including green electricity, photovoltaics, self-generated hydropower and heat pumps. Our compensation strategy for CO2 emissions is based on renewable energy certificates.
9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure - Innovation culture is highly valued at BBS. We develop customer-, project- and product-specific assembly and test automation solutions for the products of tomorrow. At BBS, people do things for people.
12 Sustainable consumption and production - We pay attention to sustainable construction right from the planning stage. BBS systems are designed to be energy-efficient and to conserve resources. These attributes are particularly crucial in the production of components in the field of renewable energies. For example, the leakage testing technology used in the production of electricity storage systems or products for generating energy from sunlight plays a major role here, especially in terms of quality and durability.
13 Measures for climate protection - BBS pursues the goal of continuously reducing emissions generated in the operation of our production sites and lowering energy consumption. We focus on customers and projects that are themselves compatible with the principles of sustainability, for example in the area of e-mobility, renewable energy and software for improving the efficiency of expended energy in production.
