For every activity and every product family, ABB is highly focused on environmental sustainability and safety. The environmental management systems, certified to ISO 14001, cover most of ABB operations and its products comply with the main International European and North-American standards. The development of eco-compatible products, not containing any substances that can endanger or harm the environment, is imperative in all the R&D activities of ABB. The reliability and efficiency of a plant depend on many factors, related both to the entire plant and to the functional details of the single subsystems and items of equipment. The quality and safety of each product are essential to guarantee the maximum performance of the plants. The more complex a plant, the more profitable it is to turn to an experienced partner, capable of providing global solutions to respond substantially and effectively to all the needs of each single application, from design to maintenance.
