ABB has been named one of the world’s most sustainable companies by Corporate Knights, an international media and research organisation. Ranked 33, ABB significantly improved its score versus last year’s ranking.
ABB is a leading global technology company that energises the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future. By connecting software to its electrification, robotics, automation and motion portfolio, ABB pushes the boundaries of technology to drive performance to new levels.
Global 100 companies represent the top 1% in the world on sustainability performance. To determine the ranking, Corporate Knights transparently analysed over 8,000 companies against global industry peers on a suite of up to 24 quantitative key performance indicators, covering resource management, employee management, financial management, clean revenue & investment and supplier performance that are weighted to reflect each industry’s impact profile.
“ABB is proud to be acknowledged as one of the Global 100 most sustainable corporations in the world. Sustainability is a core part of our company purpose as well as the value we create for all of our stakeholders,” said ABB Group Executive Committee member responsible for Sustainability Theodor Swedjemark.
“Rooted in our long history of sustainability performance, our recently launched 2030 sustainability strategy represents a new level of ambition. We want to lead by example and have committed ourselves to making a difference across our value chain and society. As a company, we aim to be carbon-neutral by 2030 and our leading technologies will both enable our customers to reduce their emissions and preserve resources,” he added.
With its 2030 sustainability strategy launched in November 2020, ABB is actively enabling a low-carbon society as well as working with its customers and suppliers to implement sustainable practices across its value chain and the lifecycle of its products and solutions.
