For ABB, which operates in more than one hundred countries, participating in the development of a more sustainable society is in the company’s DNA. The company wants to lead by example and encourage others to do business in a more ecologically, economically and socially sustainable way. The Group’s objectives for transitioning to sustainable electricity and the electrification of the company’s vehicle fleet by 2030 have already been reached in Finland. Gender-neutral parental leaves are being introduced in the entire Group at the end of this year. The biggest actions for sustainable development are, however, implemented through ABB’s customers.
– Curbing climate change without major cuts in standards of living require a global electrification. Since the consumption of electricity continues to increase, smarter, more energy efficient and cost efficient solutions are needed. Saving energy often simply means doing things more rationally, says Tiitinen.
