Diversity and Inclusiveness statement

Diversity and inclusiveness help us to deliver power and productivity.

We work on some of the biggest challenges facing business and society today, right across the globe. To succeed, we need to understand the people we serve and the cultures they live in. That means we need talented people from all over the world.

Diversity supports innovation and success, but we want to go further. At ABB, we welcome different ways of thinking and acting, different qualities and skills, different experiences and backgrounds. We value them because we are dedicated to being inclusive, recognizing and respecting all aspects of difference.   

How do we put this into practice?

We build the right structures, create the right strategies and implement the right initiatives. We then measure their effects and set ourselves more ambitious goals.

As part of our efforts, we reference the principles outlined in the following:
  • The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
  • The International Labor Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles, and
  • The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights
