Technology Innovator Bosch joins ITF Corporate Partnership Board
Bosch, one of the world’s leading technology and mobile solutions suppliers, is joining the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum (ITF), the world’s only global and all-modes transport body. As a member of the Corporate Partnership Board, Bosch will work with other corporate partners on projects including decarbonising transport and new mobility.
The Bosch Group employs roughly 402 000 associates worldwide. The company generated sales of EUR 78.1 billion in 2017. Of this, EUR 47.4 bn (61%) were generated by the group’s Mobility Solutions business sector, which combines the group’s expertise in the domains of automation, electrification and connectivity. It pursues a vision of mobility that is accident-free, emissions-free, and stress-free.
The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 59 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an annual summit of transport ministers. The Corporate Partnership Board (CPB) is the ITF’s platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.
Dr. Young Tae Kim, Secretary-General of the ITF, said:
“It is an honour for us to welcome Bosch to the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum. An innovative technology leader, Bosch is helping to integrate cutting-edge technology into all aspects of mobility. We are looking forward to Bosch’s contribution to our policy discussions.”
Dr. Markus Heyn, Member of the Board of Management of Bosch, said:
“Our membership in the ITF’s Corporate Partnership Board is a good opportunity for participation in the transport-policy debate, and thus for informing decision makers not only about the possibilities that are already available to them, but also about the innovative ideas we are helping to develop, improving the lives of the global community.”
