Our world is changing quickly and radically. The planet’s future is at stake. As the world shifts from fossil to sustainable energy sources, BDR Thermea Group is helping cut carbon emissions. We develop smart products and services that save energy and make people’s lives easier.
Our heating technologies bring a zero-carbon future closer. We apply sustainable principles every step of the way – from sourcing materials for the manufacture of our products to installing systems for everyday use. Our aim is to provide innovative, affordable products that have a low environmental impact. We work to create a sustainable supply chain, maximize our positive contributions to communities and customers, and foster a diverse and inclusive workplace.
To survive, the world needs to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources. That shift has begun. Now, it needs to accelerate. Our innovative heating technologies make the energy transition a reality.
From heat pumps and fuel cells to hybrid solutions and hydrogen boilers – we’re at the forefront of technological development. We supply boilers that run on hydrogen-gas blends and are piloting a 100%-hydrogen boiler.
We work in close collaboration with gas grid providers, governments and other stakeholders to tackle the complexities of the energy transition. Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind are not always available, creating challenges such as balancing the grid and buffering of energy. We develop our products with this in mind.
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.
– Bertrand Schmitt, CEO BDR Thermea Group
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.
As BDR Thermea Group produces product that offers a comfortable and safe indoor climate, we impact the health of our customer in a positive way.
Good care for BDR Thermea Group's employees is very important for a robust and stable functioning of the company. Therefore, taking care of employee matters (such as safety, labour circumstances amongst others) are seen as an essential supporting factor of the company's sustainability strategy and would need constant attention and improvement where possible.
Our sustainability agenda is guided by five 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:
