Calculating our products' energy use and enabling green building construction. We publish the environmental impact of KONE products and contribute to developing global energy management standards.
The biggest environmental impacts of our solutions relate to the amount of electricity elevators and escalators use over their lifetime. This underlines the importance of continuing to innovate and improve energy efficient innovations.
KONE is a pioneer in developing eco-efficient solutions in the elevator and escalator industry. The KONE MonoSpace® 500, our current machine-room-less volume elevator, is almost 90% more energy efficient than KONE elevators from the 1990s. This has been made possible by the completely renewed KONE EcoDisc® hoisting machine, a highly efficient drive, enhanced standby solutions, and LED lighting.
In developing new elevators, escalators, and automatic building doors, we focus on maximizing the positive environmental impacts and minimizing the negative ones throughout the lifecycle of our solutions.
KONE's environmental responsibility covers the full life cycle of its products, from design and manufacturing to maintenance, modernization, and end-of-life treatment.
Using smart technologies and a green vehicle fleet to minimize emissions and maximize efficiency. Remote monitoring solutions reduce unnecessary technician callouts. By carrying optimized spare part stocks in our vehicles, we reduce warehouse visits, further decreasing emissions.
