Eco-efficient construction | KONE

By: Kone  06-Dec-2011
Keywords: Elevators, Waste Handling, Rail Handling

KONE installs thousands of elevators each year. Our aim is to ensure that our installation services are carried out in an eco-efficient way. Examples of our efforts in this area are:

  • Efficient installation processes and methods that reduce the number of technicians required on site and the environmental impacts of traveling.
  • Clearly defined site requirements that need to be fulfilled before installation starts, eliminating unnecessary site visits.
  • Environmentally efficient waste handling on site, using separate containers for hazardous, metal, electrical, wood, and mixed waste.
  • Reduced chemical use through new installation methods – for example, reducing the amount of solvents needed for guide rail handling by 25,000 liters per year.

Green building design | KONE

KONE is a contributing member of the United States Green Building Council and a strong supporter of the progress that the council has made in such a short period, and we are doing everything possible to squeeze every last bit of efficiency out of our products.. The creation of reliable building rating and performance measurement systems such as LEED has certainly helped take the guesswork out of defining what is green.
