We help you achieve your energy-efficiency goals during every phase of the building life-cycle, from design and construction to maintenance and modernisation.
The best-in-class energy efficiency
We have the widest range of ISO 25745 energy efficiency ratings for A class lifts and A+++ escalators.
Up to 70% energy savings
Modernising your lifts can deliver energy savings of up to 70%, while modernising your escalator up to 50%. Our modernisation solutions range from retrofitting LED lights to installing a completely new lift with energy-regeneration technology.
Up to 90% more energy efficient
We're constantly working to improve the energy-efficiency of our products and services. Our current machine room-less lift is up to 90% more efficient than our lifts from the 90's.
An energy-efficiency leader
KONE was the first lift and escalator company to achieve A class energy efficiency certification through the international ISO 24745 standard. We have pioneered lift energy efficiency technology including regenerative drive, standby solutions, and the revolutionary KONE UltraRope®. KONE UltraRope® can cut the energy consumption of a 500-meter lift ride by up to 15%.
We have pioneered sustainable escalator technology such as the TransVario drive that can reduce escalator energy consumption by up to 16% and significantly minimise oil consumption, improving sustainability and reducing total cost of ownership.
We are committed to maximising energy efficiency for environmentally sustainable buildings. We offer sustainable solutions for all buildings ranging from retrofitting LED lights to a completely new lift with energy-regeneration technology.
Switch to KONE EcoDisc hoisting machines for 50-70% more efficiency than lifts with conventional traction.
Benefit from up to 35% in energy savings by recovering energy from daily lift use.
Energy-saving LED lighting
Reduce energy consumption by up to 80% with LED and eco-efficient fluorecent lighting.
Energy-efficient standby operation
We maximise escalator and lift energy efficiency by powering down your equipment when it is not in use.
High-efficiency drive systems for escalators
High-efficiency motors minimise energy consumption at full speed and a special KONE designed TransVario drive can even further reduce energy consumption and oil usage.
Lubrication-free escalator step chain
Lubrication-free step chain means no oil. This means a cleaner escalator and surrounding environment, reduced fire risk, simpler cleaning and easier maintenance.
We focus on reducing the materials, energy and other resources used in our solutions and operations. Currently, 90% of the metals used in our products can be recycled. And by providing customers with reliable and energy-efficient equipment that has a lifetime of over 25 years, KONE plays an important role in supporting sustainable buildings by keeping valuable resources in use for as long as possible.
Now more than ever, it’s vital we work together to reduce emissions and focus on creating sustainable cities that last for future generations. KONE has set science-based targets for a significant reduction in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and pledged to have carbon-neutral operations by 2030. We aim for a 40% reduction in emissions related to our products' materials and lifetime energy use by 2030 (relative to orders received) and we have committed to a 50% cut in the emissions from our own operations.
Carbon neutral lifts
We offer planning support for greener buildings, as well as equipment and digital services that open up new ways to save energy. And now, we can offer an option to compensate for the remaining embodied carbon emissions of your lift until the handover to help you reach your climate targets.
Carbon neutral maintenance
KONE is committed to taking concrete steps towards greener equipment maintenance. That's why we're moving towards a low-emission service car fleet and using predictive maintenance to reduce unplanned maintenance visits. For KONE DX lifts we also compensate the remaining emissions caused by direct and indirect maintenance activities through a verified carbon offsetting program.
While actively reducing our carbon emissions on our way towards our climate targets, we have decided to compensate for some remaining emissions already now. Together with our market leading offsetting partner we have selected to support a diverse range of recognised, Gold Standard certified projects. These projects include forestry, renewables, and energy efficiency and are spread across different continents.
