DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE SMART CITIES
Our ambitious environmental targets focus on further improving the eco-efficiency of our solutions, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our own operations.
At KONE, our mission is to improve the flow of urban life. As a global leader in the lift and escalator industry, KONE provides lifts, escalators and automatic building doors, as well as solutions for maintenance and modernisation, which add value to the life cycle of any building.
Through more effective People Flow®, we make people’s journeys safe, convenient and reliable, in taller, smarter buildings. Together with our partners and customers around the world, we help cities to become better places to live in. In 2015, KONE had annual net sales of EUR 8.6 billion, and at the end of the year close to 50,000 employees. KONE class B shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. in Finland.
KONE has been operating in Great Britain for nearly 40 years. With its head office in Chertsey, Surrey, KONE serves customers from regional offices across the country with its team of 1,800 employees.
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.
