When you work with integrity, non-compliant behavior is simply not an option
For many years, the compliance program built a strong foundation of uncompromising insistence that we comply with the law wherever we do business and always abide by the rules. The change to integrity marks a significant step in our maturity as a company, reflecting our aspiration to embrace standards of conduct that are even higher compared to our old compliance requirements.
From strict compliance with the letter of the law driven by top-down communications, we are now evolving toward a business driven model supported by individual accountability and personal ownership of our business principles.

We want integrity embedded in our people, our business and our processes
All ABB compliance standards, rules and guidelines remain in force. Behaving with integrity is the next step on the path, in which these standards, rules and guidelines are internalised and become second-nature everywhere in the organisation.
All employees need to understand that behaving with integrity is considered a core element of any career at ABB. It is every bit as important as a good engineering or business education. Integrity is one of ABB's five strategic imperatives, and it is the responsibility of every ABB manager to ensure that their employees understand it.
