SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS RELATED TO THIS FOCUS AREA At KONE, innovations in urban development have an important role in tackling issues such as social progress, economic prosperity and climate change. For example today’s cities take up about 2% of the world’s land mass, but account for 75% of global energy consumption and 80% of manmade carbon emissions. Reducing the impact urban areas make on the environment is essential for a more sustainable future.
