KONE Joins Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments

September 28, 2010

KONE has joined the Alliance for Sustainable Built Environments, a select group of industry leaders who practice and are recognized for leadership in sustainability.

Founded in 2003, the mission of the Alliance is to transform the marketplace: to make green building best practices industry standards. To that end, it strives to raise awareness of sustainable development and promote the triple-bottom-line benefits delivered through high performance green buildings. Members include Johnson Controls Inc., Philips Lighting, Kohler Co., Eaton Corp, Milliken & Company, Forbo Flooring, JohnsonDiversey Inc., Owens Corning, USG Corporation, and now KONE.

In addition to its commitment to producing products that contribute to a high performance green building, KONE was invited to join the Alliance because of its recognition of sustainability as a critical part of its business strategy, and its commitment to greening its own facilities and manufacturing processes
