Embedding sustainability in everything we do
At ABB, we have always taken a sustainable approach to business. Sustainability is a key part of our company Purpose and of the value that we create for all of our stakeholders.
We believe that sustainable development means progress towards a healthier and more prosperous world today and for future generations. This means balancing the needs of society, the environment and the economy. To achieve this, we act and embed this approach to business across our value chain, creating superior value for all of our stakeholders.
Through our leading technologies and responsible business practices, we also contribute to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, of which ABB has always been a strong advocate.
“At ABB, we embed sustainability in everything we do in order to create long-term value. This starts with helping our customers reduce their emissions and preserve resources, which is where we make the biggest impact, and extends to our own operations, to our suppliers and the communities we serve. We strive always to be an exemplary corporate citizen wherever we operate.”
– ABB CEO, Björn Rosengren
