Fortune Magazine includes ABB in the "Change the World" list

ABB’s global leadership in fast charging solutions for electric vehicles leads Fortune magazine to rank it No 8..........

among top companies that “help the planet and tackle social problems.”

ABB has been named No 8 in Fortune magazine’s “Change the World” rankings for the company’s efforts to speed up adoption of clean-energy electric transportation. The list, Fortune said, honors companies that “have had a positive social impact through activities that are part of their core business strategy.”

 “ABB is committed to running the world without consuming the earth,’’ ABB-CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer said.

ABB, whose e-mobility portfolio includes charging and power solutions for trains, buses and ships, has developed fast-chargers for cars that can add as much as 200 kilometers (nearly 125 miles) of cruising range in as little as 8 minutes.

‘‘As electric vehicles have grown more popular,” Fortune wrote, “ABB has installed over 7,000 fast charging stations worldwide—saving about 2 million gallons of gasoline over the past seven years. The charging business has posted double-digit annual revenue growth since 2015. Next up: a plan with Electrify America to place hundreds of charging stations in the U.S. in the next year”.
