In order to improve the environmental efficiency of buildings, KONE cooperates with green building organizations. We help customers design buildings that are functional and environmentally efficient throughout their lifecycle. By analyzing the flow of people in buildings, we help our customers match the building size and traffic patterns with the right solutions. These solutions help our customers achieve energy efficiency standards for their buildings.
