At ABB we are committed to maintaining high standards of integrity and sustainability, and complying with all applicable laws and regulations, across our global business operations. We believe that the human rights and dignity of all individuals should be respected and seek to ensure that all of our stakeholders, including employees, customers, suppliers and value chain partners, are treated with respect and fairness at all times.
Our goal is for human rights to be well-understood and well-integrated into our operations and our value chain. We adhere to international frameworks to identify human rights risks and potential impacts and to implement appropriate measures to mitigate adverse impacts. These frameworks and tools include: United Nations’ Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises on Responsible Business Conduct, ILO Core Conventions on Labour Standards including ILO Convention No. 138 on minimum age for admission to employment and ILO Convention No. 182 on the worst forms of child labor, and ILO-IOE Child Labour Guidance Tool for Business.
Our Code of Conduct, Human Rights Policy and Supplier Code of Conduct establish our commitments to human rights and expectations for each individual working at ABB or engaging with ABB’s business.
The newly updated Human Rights Policy sets out in more detail ABB’s commitment to respecting human rights and the new Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD) Framework describes how ABB implements those commitments.
