• Climate action - ABB Sustainability Report 2020

    Within our own operations, our focus over the past seven years has primarily been on reducing GHG emissions from fossil energy and transportation, as well as from the handling of sulfur hexafluoride gas (SF 6). In addition to these efforts, in 2020 all of our Business Areas and divisions worked to assess potential measures to cut their emissions in preparation for the ambitious new GHG targets in ABB’s 2030 sustainability strategy.
