DIANE DE SAINT VICTOR, GENERAL COUNSEL Our company is committed to fostering a culture where integrity is woven into the fabric of everything we do. Our company Code of Conduct is the framework that explains the behavior ABB expects of every employee and stakeholder around the world. It is based on ABB's business principles: responsibility, respect and determination. We employees and stakeholders apply these business principles to their work and actions on a daily basis. Our principles are about providing our customers affordable products and services without compromising on quality or reliability. But they are also about doing the right thing more generally – following the law, acting honorably and treating each other with respect. The ABB Code of Conduct provides a framework for employees and stakeholders to put business principles into practice with utmost integrity. It is the foundation so that everything we do in connection to our work at ABB should be, and will be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethics and integrity.

Unconditional commitment

We relentlessly set our standards higher for practical as well as ambitious reasons: our unconditional commitment to integrity helps us hire the best people, who develop and provide great products and services, which in turn attracts loyal customers and business partners. Trust and mutual respect among ABB employees and stakeholders is the core of our success, and they must be earned on a daily basis. Employees are expected to read the ABB Code of Conduct and use it in their day-to-day work, always keeping in mind that they each have a personal responsibility to incorporate the principles – and encourage others to incorporate the principles – into their actions. It is available in more than 40 languages to assure its accessibility to everyone at ABB. Employees who have questions or concerns, or who think that one of their colleagues may be falling short of our commitment to the ABB Code of Conduct and to working with utmost integrity, are expected to speak up.
