KONE, a global leader in the elevator and escalator industry, has again been awarded a position on the CDP 2021 Supplier Engagement Rating (SER) Leaderboard. KONE ranks among the top 4.5% of organizations assessed by CDP. Demonstrating actions to cut emissions, mitigate climate risks, and develop a low-carbon economy, KONE also achieved a place on CDP’s prestigious ‘A List’ for Climate Change at the end of last year.
“We are delighted to be included in CDP’s Supplier Engagement Rating Leaderboard, which recognizes KONE as a global leader for engaging with our suppliers. Companies need to better understand their impact on the value chain, make the most of low-carbon business opportunities, and continue to work on climate resilience,” said Hanna Uusitalo, environmental director at KONE.
KONE works with approximately 30,000 suppliers, which provide the company with raw materials, components, and modules, as well as logistics and installation services. As a responsible corporate citizen and business partner, KONE aims to make a positive impact throughout the value chain. Taking responsibility for the environment and sustainability more broadly is included in the KONE Supplier Code of Conduct.
