Sustainability begins with you because, at ABB, you work for a brighter future.
My team works on some pretty well-known projects. One is China’s very first offshore wind farm, Donghai Bridge in Shanghai, which generates enough power for 200,000 households! Of course, a project like this requires a lot of organization, and I sit right in the middle of it. I help to coordinate everything from the review of contracts to production, the dispatch of cargo and customer service. This means a lot of responsibility, a lot of contact with different kinds of people and a lot of busy days to make it all happen.
Our projects are big in size, but I think they are even bigger in impact. For many Chinese, the environment is on our mind every day. When my son wants to go outside to play with his friends, I have to think about the air quality and whether it’s better for him to stay inside. I would like to see the environment improve so that kids can go outside to play anytime they want. I think the work we do brings us closer to making this a reality, and I feel proud to be involved. I like being able to say to my friends, “Look, that’s what we did!”
I feel that I am doing something good for the generations to come.
