Developing sustainable smart cities and low-carbon communities

We support sustainable and green building through our energy-efficient and innovative offering, healthy, functional, and sustainable materials, as well as transparent documentation about our products’ environmental impacts. We help our customers meet various green building requirements even better with the KONE DX Class elevator range. With KONE People Flow Planning and Consulting we support creating future-proof, adaptable buildings that last for future generations.

External recognition for sustainability

Several of our solutions have received external recognition for their sustainability. We have received Singapore Green Building Product (SGBP) certifications for several solutions and we are the first and the only elevator and escalator company to have all certifications with the highest possible "Leader" ratings. The SGBP-certified solutions are recommended for Green Mark-certified buildings in the Asia-Pacific region.

KONE has also received an "Accepted" rating in the Byggvarubedömningen (BVB) assessment system for several solutions in Sweden. BVB is a Swedish nonprofit organization that evaluates solutions for buildings and drives the use of sustainable building materials.
