Total Rewards

Abt Global strives to provide competitive, market-driven total rewards packages in all the countries in which we operate, as well as providing all benefits mandated by local labor law. There is no standard worldwide total rewards package, and the specific types and levels of benefits vary by country.

Impactful Telework Program

Global Sustainability Program

The Global Sustainability Program (GSP) is an established company-wide framework for integrating sustainability into Abt's operations, business, and culture. In 2015, we committed to decarbonize by 2050, setting an initial reduction target of 25% by 2021 from the 2012 base year. Four years ahead of schedule, we beat our target, and achieved a 49.7% reduction by 2019.

Today, Abt has made the commitment to align our climate mitigation targets with the goal of keeping global warming to 1.5°C and reaching science-based net-zero emissions by 2050.

Learn more about our new target and how we act on climate change.
