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. We understand People Flow in and between buildings, making people's journeys safe, convenient and reliable. In 2016, KONE had annual net sales of EUR 8.8 billion, and at the end of the year over 52,000 employees. KONE class B shares are listed on the Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. in Finland.
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 programs that are designed to help us turn our strategy into reality.
