Our Commitment

ABB Group is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Code of Conduct contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics.

ABB Group is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. There are a number of channels whereby you can report complaints or concerns of possible improper conduct or illegal activities without threat of retaliation. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred.

In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this Helpline, hosted by a third party Helpline provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations stated in our Code of Conduct, as well as asking for guidance regarding Business Ethics Matters.

Reports to this Helpline will usually be handled by the Integrity Investigations & Monitoring team (IIM), which reports into ABB Group Function Legal & Integrity, or can be referred to another function, if appropriate. Where required by local law, you can also choose to submit your report to a local ABB instance for handling.

Please note that in most instances questions and concerns related to payroll, leave days, medical leave are best handled via AskHR or by your HR Business Partner.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint and handled on a confidential basis and you can choose to report anonymously where permitted by law. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs or Privacy Notice for ABB employees and others for more information.

Please note that the generic Privacy Notice for all reporters is included in the reporting steps.
