The environmental requirements and aspirations of companies are shifting, with new ambitions to decarbonize their operations and footprint. Environmental impact from raw materials and suppliers as well as the impact throughout the lifespan of the products and services are becoming an integral part of a company responsibility.
In this Webinar we look at the decarbonization options and opportunities in the electrical sector and how these align with the UN sustainable development goals. We present an overview of the environmental impact of ABB Power Grids business across the supply chain and how we enable decarbonization for our customers and shape the future of sustainable energy. We use concrete examples on circular economy, improved efficiency and sustainable materials to show the impact on the decarbonization effects.
