Sustainable value creation

ABB is committed to sustainable value creation.

Sustainability considerations and principles are embedded throughout our business value chain – from how we develop and produce energy-efficient products, and the sourcing of materials, through to end-of-life recycling and waste disposal.

We create value by manufacturing and supplying energy-efficient power and automation products, systems and solutions to our customers in utilities, industry, infrastructure and transportation which makes their operations more energy-efficient and lowers their environmental impact. Robust risk management processes, covering health and safety, and social, environmental and security impacts, strengthen business performance and resilience.

Goal

By 2020 and beyond, ABB will be recognized as a leading contributor to a more sustainable world through our unique business offering and sustainable business practices. These help us capitalize on market opportunities and reduce safety, security and environmental risks to create value for our customers, employees and other stakeholders.
