636 tons/year CO 2 saved

The 6,600 square meter site producing wiring accessories and installation materials for the smart buildings market in the Nordics now utilizes 100 percent renewable energy. By using recycled plastic as a raw material the carbon footprint has been reduced by a further 106 tons a year. On-site electric vehicle (EV) charging for employees and visitors are also charged with renewable energy. With no use of fossil fuels at all, Porvoo becomes the latest ABB facility worldwide to achieve carbon neutral operations to-date using state-of-the-art technologies from ABB and its partners, through the ongoing Mission to Zero™ program.
