Adding business value from day one

About to complete your university degree and considering the BDR Thermea International Graduate Programme? Read on to learn more about this two-year scheme. 

In the first year, you’ll do four individual assignments that add value to the business, one of them abroad. Matched to your interests, skills and knowledge, these will enable you to explore different roles and areas of expertise, acquaint you with how we work, and build your network. 

You’ll work with your fellow graduates on a joint strategic project, too, delivering your findings and recommendations to the Management Board. 

In your second year, you’ll be placed in a function within the organisation. Throughout the programme, you’ll receive on-the job-training, coaching and the opportunity to consult a mentor.

Our International Graduate Programme covers research & development; procurement; quality; health, safety & environment; IT; and marketing. 


Smart solutions

Opening a world of value for installers and end-users

The energy transition requires a technological revolution. Our connected, intelligent, easy-to-use tools and services open a world of value for customers and installers, offering energy efficiency and excellent experiences.

Product connectivity and the Internet of Things (IoT) are opening doors to new services and customer experiences. Connected thermostats, remote monitoring and predictive maintenance make installation easy, benefiting installers at the commissioning or servicing stage. And they give end-users control over their comfort.

Our products are usually part of a larger system or combination of heat generators. That’s why we make products that can operate easily with each other, such as a boiler in a hybrid situation with a heat pump. Our smart products contribute to the energy transition, feeding into smart grids and helping buffer energy and balancing the grid.


“Our driving force is bringing a zero-carbon future closer for our customers and the world – helping solve one of our planet’s biggest challenges”

– Bertrand Schmitt, CEO BDR Thermea Group

  • Climate action
  • Responsible consumption and production
  • Quality education
  • Gender equality
We want to play an active role in reducing the environmental footprint of the solutions we offer. Our ambition to provide solutions with a near zero carbon footprint drives investment in our portfolio of products. We are reducing the CO2 footprint reduction of our own offices and manufacturing sites by using more efficient lighting systems and moving to renewable energy.
Most of our emissions come from use of our products, as well as from our supply chain. We can influence the responsible production and consumption of our products, so they are used efficiently and disposed of responsibly. This includes using recyclable materials at the design and production stages, and using recycling and take-back schemes at the end of products’ lives.
Through the BDR Thermea Shareholder Foundation,we support education of people in the communities we operate. As a company, we stimulate education of our business partners. We train thousands of installers each year across our core markets. We educate and develop our employees so they have the mindset and skills to deal with the challenges the energy transition brings.
We believe diversity and inclusion in their broadest sense are key to our success. Increased diversity of gender, cultures, nationalities, views and more benefit the quality of our decision-making and business operations. An inclusive approach also ensures we can attract and retain the best talents in society – and so perform better as a company.

Sustainable Development Goals

Putting sustainability goals into action

Our sustainability agenda is guided by four UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are the themes that most impact us, and where we think we can have the most impact. This is how we contribute to a better future in terms of people, planet and profit.

The SDGs we have chosen are:

  • Climate action (take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts)
  • Responsible consumption and production (ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns)
  • Quality education (ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all)
  • Gender equality (achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls)
