Responsible sourcing 

Responsible sourcing has been an area of focus for many years, with a series of policies and programs in place to strengthen performance and partnerships in the supply chain.

The issue has been prioritized in one of ABB’s Sustainability Objectives 2014-2020 which commits the company to understand and manage well the social and environmental risks and impacts of sourcing practices.

Through collaboration with our business partners, we aim to enhance supplier relationships, ensure the highest quality standards and create a sustainable supply chain. With a large and complex supply chain, this is a considerable undertaking but it is central to business success. 

Our efforts are underpinned by governance measures such as the ABB Supplier Code of Conduct and global initiatives like the Supplier Sustainability Development program.  

Sustainability and integrity are a key part of ABB's Supply Chain Management strategy. You can read more about our aims, policies and performance, below and on the site “Supplying to ABB.”
