VISION AND STRATEGY

Our vision is to deliver the best People Flow® experience

This means we understand that different types of buildings serve different purposes, which has an impact on the flow of people and on the surrounding environment. It also means we provide Ease, Effectiveness and Experiences to our users and customers, over the full life cycle of buildings.

KONE’s efforts to meet its strategic targets are supported by development programmes that are designed to help us turn our strategy into reality.
