Products, services and solutions Pioneering innovative technologies for more than 130 years
Around the globe, ABB drives efficiency, safety and productivity in utilities, industry, and transport & infrastructure
With a heritage of innovation spanning more than 130 years, ABB takes pride in developing and deploying technologies that stimulate economic growth and directly improve people’s lives.
In 2017, we revised the measures and 2020 targets for our products, solutions and services to focus on our eco-efficiency portfolio. This portfolio delivers positive use-phase impacts in three areas: energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource efficiency. Going forward, our target is to drive the growth of this eco-efficiency portfolio, aiming for it to account for 60 percent of ABB’s total revenue by 2020, supported by substantial investment in research and development.
The rationale behind these changes lies in ABB’s deep commitment to running the world without consuming the earth. Our new measures and targets not only reflect this aspiration, but will also serve to propel our company on a new growth path – one that is fueled by sustainability-oriented innovation.
Over the past year, we performed well towards our 2020 target, with our eco-efficiency portfolio accounting for 56 percent of ABB’s revenue in 2017.
