 ABB welcomes President Biden’s decision to rejoin Paris climate accord  

“Sustainability is a key part of ABB’s company Purpose and of the value that we create for our customers and society. As a leader in electrification and automation, we play a critical role in helping to reduce energy consumption and emissions in industry, buildings and transport – sectors that together account for nearly three-quarters of total energy consumption. 

“The United States is ABB’s largest geographical market and operation with 20,000 employees. We are firmly committed to deploying our leading technologies to support the U.S.’s efforts to move towards a low-carbon economy in line with Paris Agreement. Our own 2030 commitment is to help our customers reduce their annual CO2 emissions by 100 megatons - equivalent to the total annual emissions of a state such as New Jersey or of 30 million combustion cars – for the benefit of society, the environment, and the economy.”
