ABB wins sustainability excellence award
ABB Australia has been named the winner for Excellence in Sustainability at the 2020–2021 Swedish Business in Australia Awards for the way its products and solutions for smart cities, manufacturing and transportation are enabling the transition to a low-carbon society.
The award judges said ABB is a global leader in technologies that will make the world more sustainable. “It’s so good that their offering of products, technologies, skills and know-how is applied to the Australian market, be it in smarter buildings, energy production or transport.”
The group is supporting sustainable mobility across the entire e-mobility value chain, offering a complete range of solutions for the electrification of buses, commercial vehicles, passenger cars, ships and railways. ABB provides not only electric vehicle (EV) charging stations, but also critical EV charging network components, such as substations, energy storage systems and eco-friendly switchgear. For industrial, commercial and residential environments, applying ABB’s smart building technology enhances energy efficiency and reduces electricity consumption in industrial, which when fully implemented can deliver a 30% reduction in energy costs.
In a statement, ABB said that in Australia, the group has demonstrated a number of ‘firsts’ when it comes to applying its technology to projects leading the way in sustainable design and engineering: South Australia’s first 10-Star rated home; Western Australia’s first electric bus route; and the largest healthcare building automation project in the Southern Hemisphere with Calvary Adelaide Hospital.
