About

KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has set science-based targets for significant reductions in its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by the year 2030. In addition, KONE has pledged to have carbon-neutral operations by 2030. To reach these ambitious goals, we invite the best-in-class startups to co-create digital solutions with KONE teams to measure, manage and minimize KONE’s GHG emissions.

Theme Description

Data is a key resource in sustainability transformations knowing the CO2-heavy phases of a product’s life helps us make the best decisions for mitigating emissions.

This applies to both retrospective reporting and real-time optimization. That is why we are looking for digital enablers that can make our operations more sustainable through easily accessible data, displayed on dedicated dashboards. Part of the KONE carbon neutral strategy is offsetting the remaining emissions that cannot be mitigated, and data is needed for our impact assessments.

As being a leader in sustainability has long been a strategic target for KONE, we are taking actions across the whole supply chain and the lifecycle of our products. We are looking for solutions that utilize data from our manufacturing processes or our customers’ people flow processes to support our strategy.

Opportunity overview

In this opportunity, we are focusing on digital ways to help us gather, analyze and minimize our greenhouse gas emissions.

Focus Areas

Examples of solutions we’re interested in

Analyzing and minimizing the carbon footprint of our people flow solutions

Digital enablers to visualize the GHG emission metrics of our sold equipment to monitor and create user awareness about the usage of elevators and escalators (through monitors, dashboards). We are also looking at the collected data to identify gaps and areas to improve with further actions.

Integrating digital enablers into our solution creation and delivery processes

Digital enablers to visualize the GHG emission metrics of our sold equipment to monitor and create user awareness about the usage of elevators and escalators (through monitors, dashboards). We are also looking at the collected data to identify gaps and areas to improve with further actions.

Measuring and gathering data for carbon accounting and reporting
