Lifecycle analysis of KONE products

Lifecycle analysis of KONE products

Lifecycle assessments of KONE elevators and escalators show that the greatest environmental impact of an elevator or escalator stems from the electricity used in the operation of the equipment. Therefore, the key focus area for KONE is to systematically reduce the energy consumption of its solutions with each new product release.

Elevators and escalators consist mostly of metals and, therefore, around 90% of elevator and escalator material can be recycled.
