Sustainable Products & Services


With our innovative products, we are addressing the challenges of urbanization with safety and sustainability for people and the environment as our top priorities.

What we do

We are developing products that contribute to reducing the carbon footprint of buildings and cities by modernizing existing infrastructures and contributing to lower energy consumption.

Efficiency

By maximizing energy and resource efficiency, we are significantly reducing the emissions and environmental impact of buildings. In addition, our space-saving solutions lower the overall embodied carbon used in buildings. Taking the steps to increase sustainability is a top priority in our product development.

  • Part of our product portfolio has already qualified for the highest energy efficiency rating (Class A as defined by ISO 25745-2 for elevators, and Class A+++ according to ISO 25745-3 escalators).
  • With our modernization solutions, we reduce the use of materials and energy in buildings.

Lifecycle

Understanding the environmental footprint of an elevator’s life cycle and being aware of the various ways to recycle components helps us to understand the overall environmental impact of our products, as well as to optimize R&D processes – and ultimately the design of our products. To ensure transparency regarding our products, we publish Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and communicate the results of the Life Cycle Assessments to the public.

  • In all our main markets we have EPDs registered for a wide range of our elevators.
  • The upstream production phase as well as the usage phase have the highest impact on the environmental performance of our products.
  • At the end of our products’ life, steel components are recyclable which can provide a substantial improvement of its environmental impact.
  • Other stages of the life cycle of our products, including transportation, installation and service, play a less significant role in terms of the environmental impact.

Product Safety

Keeping our passengers safe is fundamental to the success of our business. By applying cutting-edge processes and tools, we ensure optimal safety in the production, installation and maintenance of our elevators. Product safety is a joint effort of TK Elevator together with property owners, equipment suppliers, subcontractors, and maintenance service providers.

  • TK Elevator co-founded the Global Elevator Safety Forum for pursuing a safe and fatality-free industry.
  • We developed our 10 Safety Rules which are applicable to employees and subcontractors around the world. Download them here.
