As you know, industries are evolving rapidly to adjust to the pandemic
and a post-pandemic economy. But questions remain: What are we doing
well right now and what do we need to do differently?
One thing we discovered was that technology was key in keeping
operations going. We saw a rapid rise in digitalization and automation.
That’s why we continue to invest in our digital strategy. We are
focused on meeting customer needs and further empowering our
distributor partners with their e-commerce activities to sell digital
Our commitment to you is providing more connected products, more

To create this joint value proposition and help distributors to grow
their business and differentiate as a service driven organization, we
will be rolling out the ABB Value Provider Program for ABB
Ability™ solutions (starting with Energy and Asset Management in H2
2021, Building and E-mobility to follow in 2022).
Certified partners will be able to promote and sell our smart and
connected devices along with our Software-as-a-Service solutions, with
the option to incorporate additional services including design,
commissioning and after-sales support.
We will help our certified Value Provider partners to build an
incremental set of competences for a given digital domain of expertise,
empowering them to enroll on the program based on on-the-ground
capabilities and local go-to-market strategy.
Our partnership and certification process is aimed at enhancing
distributors perceived added value in offering customers solutions that
address their needs in a specific area (domain of expertise).
ABB wants Value Providers to develop their expertise in particular
domains and to be recognized as expert by Customers. As a result, are
provided with a label on which their relevant domains of expertise are
With ABB Ability digital offering we help our partners to become expert
in digital solutions and relevant domains such as Asset Management,
Energy Management, Building Management, E-Mobility.

biggest impact – reducing carbon emissions, preserving resources and
promoting social progress. Our solutions and responsible business
practices drive sustainability across our value chain and contribute to
the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
With the release of the latest IPCC climate report, the scientific
evidence has never been clearer: We need to make rapid progress in
cutting greenhouse gases, if we are to meet the 1.5°C Paris Agreement
scenario. As a global technology company, we at ABB believe that technology holds
the key to a sustainable future and to tackling climate change. Many of
the technologies needed to reduce GHG emissions are already available
today. At the forthcoming COP26 climate conference, governments,
businesses and civil society need to work together to empower companies
and citizens to accelerate the implementation of these technologies in
line with ambitious targets. The IPCC assessment is an important
scientifically-based reminder that a common approach involving every
sector and country is crucial.
On Zero Emissions Day, let’s remember the importance
of targets and goals in the energy transition
Mission to Zero is a key part of ABB’s 2030 sustainability strategy, in
which we are actively enabling a low-carbon society by working with our
customers and suppliers to reduce their emissions as well as achieve
carbon neutrality in our own operations.
can we use artificial intelligence to fortify the predictive
maintenance of industrial critical assets? By combining domain
knowledge and machine learning algorithms, ABB delivers a unique yet
practical approach to do just that.
