The ABB company vision is focused around “Power and productivity for a better World”. ABB's products, systems, solutions and services are designed to improve our customers' businesses - centered on improving grid reliability and increasing industrial productivity - while lowering environmental impact.
We seek to minimise the environmental impact of our technologies and products, passing on this expertise to customers and suppliers, at the same time as trying to ensure that our manufacturing processes are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient.
Greenhouse gas management and reduction is one of the key focus areas in our sustainability ambitions for 2020. ABB is an industry leader in energy efficiency, use of low-carbon fuels and renewable energy. We cut greenhouse gas emissions. ABB (global) is targeted to reduce its energy use by 20% by 2020 (baseline 2013).
Energy is at the core of our business. The link between energy efficiency, reduction of CO2 and combating climate change is evident. ABB’s strategy identifies tackling climate change as a key driver for business growth. More than half of ABB's revenues are related to energy efficiency as a differentiator. Internally, this objective covers all activities throughout the value chain, like manufacturing, workshop and office facilities, as well as business travel and logistics.
