Commitment to community support

Supporting the communities in which ABB’s people work and live is a way for ABB and its people to give back to those less fortunate. Through its Workplace Giving Program, ABB employees can tax-effectively donate to a group of charities they have selected, including Cancer Council of Australia, Children's Hospital Foundations Australia, Salvation Army, The Smith Family and Australian Red Cross. 

ABB Australia is also involved in ad hoc fundraising activities such as the $180,000 raised through employee donation matching for the Queensland flood victims in 2011. Another initiative is providing each employee with one charity day off a year to help support a charity or community activity that is important to them.

Community engagement across the globe


ABB provides scholarships to electrical engineering students in different parts of the world who can prove a high standard of academic achievement and who need financial support to be able to continue their studies.
