Bosch Rexroth, Hoffman Estates, Ill., a supplier of products, systems, and services for drive, control, and motion technologies, recently announced plans to participate in the Chicago Climate Exchange® (CCX®). The CCX is the world's first and North America's only voluntary, legally binding greenhouse gas emissions reduction, registry, and trading program. Bosch Rexroth is participating through its parent organization, the Bosch Group.
Bosch Rexroth says that through its participation it will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The company aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 6 percent in its U.S. operations by 2010, from a baseline of the company's average greenhouse gas emissions in the year 2000.
The company says it continually works to develop energy-efficient products and technologies used in renewable- and clean-energy applications. The company's electric, hydraulic, pneumatic, and linear-motion products are used in applications ranging from wind energy, trash-to-energy, and solar power production to energy reduction and efficiency improvement programs on the factory floor.
