Helping society and industry achieve a more productive, sustainable future

“At ABB, we embed sustainability in everything we do to create long-term value.”

-  ABB CEO, Björn Rosengren

Sustainability in action

Our four business areas are working towards a more sustainable and resource-efficient future every day.

ABB provides high-power chargers for Germany’s first electric bus depot
Cutting CO2 emissions

ABB is helping the German city of Hamburg meet its 2030 goal of cutting CO₂ emissions in half compared with 1990 levels.

Simultaneous charging

The fleet’s 44 buses are re-charged simultaneously overnight so they start each day fully charged with a range of up to 150 km.

Space-saving

High-power chargers are mounted on the ceiling, making them ideal for urban bus depots where space is at a premium.

ABB powers future for sustainable public transport pilot in Hamburg

Hamburger Hochbahn AG has appointed ABB to supply infrastructure for 44 high-power chargers, for Germany’s first electric bus depot.
ABB electrifies Lisbon’s ferries on the way to carbon neutrality
Cutting CO2 emissions

Electrifying the ten ferries operating on Lisbon’s Tagus river is expected to cut CO2 emissions by about 6,500 tons a year.

On course to net-zero

Increased electrification of transport, including inland waterway transport, will help Portugal achieve net-zero by 2050.

Maximizing battery lifetime

ABB's Power and Energy Management System provides a high degree of reliability while ensuring the maximum lifetime for the batteries.

ABB sets course for sustainable river transport with ten all-electric Lisbon ferries

ABB secures landmark contract with Spanish shipbuilder Astilleros Gondán to supply all-electric power solution for fast 40-meter urban passenger ferries transporting up to 540 passengers each across Lisbon’s Tagus river.
ABB technology gives a new lease on life to Germany’s high-speed trains
On track for longer

ABB traction technology extends the operating life of the fleet, making it fit for service for at least another decade.

Lower energy losses

Traction converters reduce energy losses and mechanical stress on the existing traction motors as well as noise.

Good as new

Upgrading the technology makes old trains as reliable, energy efficient and easy to maintain as modern ones.

ABB traction technology to increase efficiency of Deutsche Bahn’s ICE 1 high-speed trains

ABB traction converters selected to upgrade 76 InterCity Express first generation high-speed locomotives. Our technology will improve energy efficiency, reliability and ease of maintenance.
ABB unmasks the future of customized automotive painting
Cuts paint waste to zero

Our Pixelpaint solution prints paint directly on to the car body, instead of spraying it, which means no paint is wasted.

Lower emissions

By eliminating paint waste, Pixelpaint reduces operating costs and CO2 emissions from paint production.

Cleaner and faster

PixelPaint eliminates the need for masking and de-masking each car, reducing waste and cycle times by around 50 percent.

ABB unmasks the future of customized automotive painting with PixelPaint

PixelPaint is 50 per cent faster and more sustainable, using an inkjet head to eliminate overspray, ensuring two-tone paint and individual designs are applied in one pass, without masking and de-masking.
