Urban centers cause around 80% of the world’s pollution, and buildings consume 40% of world energy. Making both greener is essential to conserving a livable planet. Schindler contribute to making urban centers more sustainable with energy and resource-conserving mobility solutions. Our ultimate goal is zero net energy use, combined with high-quality mobility. We share the same goal - greener buildings.
Schindler’s approach to environmental issues mirrors the way it approaches business overall: we systematically analyse our activities and focus on areas where we can have maximum impact.
Schindler has prepared an extensive amount of information regarding its green initiatives including topics such as ecological foot print, site consumption, vehicle fleet, product ecology and strategic suppliers.
Schindler is known for farsighted energy planning. Prior to installation, our “Traffic Vision Planning” program simulates traffic patterns and analyzes usage-frequency in your building. It then calculates future energy consumption so you can optimize it long-term.
Schindler system-engineered mobility solutions help you build greener. From Miconic 10 to today’s PORT Technology, our innovations save energy and costs. Low-friction, regenerative drives, and no hazardous materials keep our product’s environmental impact down.
> Green solutions for New Buildings
About 80% of a building’s total environmental impact is produced during full operation times. We lower this by regular maintenance. This keeps your mobility solution clean, reliable and energy-efficient. Our maintenance teams use smart route planning to reduce their CO2 footprint. They drive electric vehicles where possible.
Modernizing an elevator or escalator increases safety and comfort for passengers, and improves energy efficiency. Schindler installs new LED lighting, for example, PF1 energy-regenerating drives, and controls enabling stand-by modes. Modernizing with us can transform your old elevator into an energy-efficient system.
