KONE reports using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines in order to facilitate the comparison of our performance with that of other companies and to streamline our own corporate responsibility reporting efforts. The report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option.
During 2019-20, we conducted a materiality assessment to update our sustainability focus areas and topics. You can read more about identifying the most significant topics to our reporting, or the materiality assessment, in our latest Sustainability Report, and details of the process here.
KONE is a committed participant of the UN Global Compact and its ten principles on human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. We report on our sustainability performance annually in line with the Communication of Progress process as defined by the UN Global Compact.
