Ethics and compliance

KONE has operations in over 60 countries and collaborates with authorized distributors and agents in almost 100 countries around the world. As a global corporate citizen, we are fully committed to the laws and regulations of the countries where we operate.

We are a participant of the UN Global Compact and its ten principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. The principles are embedded in our strategy, policies and procedures, such as KONE’s Codes of Conduct and our Competition Compliance Policy, as well as processes related to these.
