Alfonso González, General Director of ABB's Electrification business in Spain, kicked off the event by highlighting key aspects of ABB's strategy as a leading technology company and its focus on electrification: "At ABB we want to celebrate that we are here again sharing our time with you the distributors. We have to celebrate it because the environment has given us difficult challenges to overcome, and we have done it together. Changes are accelerating and the need for companies to combine a long-term vision with short-term management increases. As a leading company, we believe in the power of working together. Markets grow or shrink, open and close customers, new technologies challenge traditional business models and enable us to help our clients successfully navigate the operational challenges we face today." This belief is what he sees at the core of our strategic plan.
In addition to Alfonso's words, Ruth Solozábal, Commercial Director of ABB's Electrification business in Spain, highlighted: "Our key objective is to provide safe, intelligent and sustainable electrification for our customers and partners. We renew our commitment to distribution, a commitment that will require us to integrate more logistically, in e-commerce and in knowledge. The sum of the parts will be greater in value than the parts separately. Only in this way will we all continue to be a leading part of the sector. Leadership will be fundamental in this evolution process, in which the human teams of the companies must acquire new skills, using the power of digitization to offer customers integrated and holistic solutions, not just products.”
Solozábal has also highlighted that ABB's commitment to 2030 includes achieving carbon neutrality in its own operations and helping its customers reduce their CO2 emissions through its own ' Mission to Zero TM ' program. We will support our customers in reducing their annual CO2 emissions by at least 100 megatonnes , equivalent to the annual emissions of 30 million combustion cars.
