Responsibility is central to the way we do business: it governs the way we work and deliver value. Building on foundations laid over five generations, we're dedicated to healthy growth that benefits our shareholders as much as our customers, our employees, and the communities in which we're active.
For us, at Schindler, being a responsible company is more than just striving to minimize the use of natural resources. We also enable sustainable, smart urban mobility, while committing to a sustainable supply chain for all our products and drive innovation for green building management.
Being responsible also means that we empower an inclusive work environment in which a workforce as diverse as our customers and passengers can thrive. And we are proud of the value we create in the communities we are part of, for instance by helping develop young talent through education and training, and by fostering lifelong learning for our technicians.
We have set a Sustainability Roadmap for 2022 which is driven by the Board of Directors. It establishes a clear framework for action on six strategic priorities to generate the greatest possible impact.
Our Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) priorities were identified through consultations with the Group Executive Committee and a selection of senior managers across our organization. A panel of independent experts added their insights to ensure our roadmap is focused on areas where we can make the biggest contribution.
Every day, we move more than 1.5 billion passengers, who rely on our products to get around – that means the safety and reliability of our products are critical.
We pioneer smart mobility with our ideas and solutions, keeping an ever-growing urban world easily accessible and making each trip safe and efficient.
We are committed to increase sustainability and environmental awareness in our supply chain while maintaining high standards of safety & quality.
With our global service vehicle fleet, Schindler technicians are on the move to provide seamless mobility for everyone, 24 hours a day.
Our global presence, with more than 69,000 people spread across 100 countries, gives us access to the full spectrum of human diversity. We are proud to provide a work environment that is inclusive and diverse.
We keep communities on the move – but not only. We make a positive contribution to society through targeted Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
