Buildings account for about 40% of the world’s energy consumption. Elevators and escalators can account for 2 to 10% of the energy consumption of an individual building. By reducing the energy consumption of its products, KONE seeks to decrease the environmental impact of buildings, and thus help to counter climate change and its negative effects
KONE aims to be a leader in sustainability
KONE has systematically reduced the energy consumption of its elevators through product innovations and improvements resulting in over 70% reduction. The company is also committed to reducing the carbon footprint of its own operations by 3 % annually relative to net sales.
KONE develops smart and energy-efficient solutions for next-generation green buildings and thus enables the transformation of the built environment into smart eco-cities, low-carbon communities, and net zero energy buildings.
KONE is a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry. The employees of the company have been committed to understanding the needs of our customers for the past 100 years, providing industry-leading elevators, escalators, automatic building doors and integrated solutions to enhance the People Flow® in and between buildings. KONE’s services cover the entire lifetime of a building, from the design phase to maintenance, repairs and modernization solutions. KONE works together with its suppliers and customers to prevent or reduce business-operations-related greenhouse gas emissions in order to mitigate climate change.
