Corporate press releases

Konecranes has received an A- rating in CDP's annual climate program, recognition of its ambitious efforts to make holistic climate disclosures and climate risk and opportunities management a business norm. The rating improved from last year’s B, elevating Konecranes into the Leadership ranking. The measurement is based on the company's disclosures about its actions to cut emissions, manage and mitigate climate risks and develop a low-carbon offering.

"This is a great achievement, and I am pleased that our commitment to climate change efforts and our long-term commitment towards sustainability have been recognized. We are in a unique position to help other industries shift to a low-carbon future by offering solutions which intensify decarbonization and advance electrification,” says Anniina Virta-Toikka, Head of Sustainability at Konecranes.

“We have a clear Climate Roadmap for years to come. We are taking action in both our own operations and throughout our value chain. In 2022 we started using our first electrified service vehicles and continued conducting energy efficiency improvements in our manufacturing operations. In the value chain, our primary focus is on electrifying our offering while developing digitalization and automation as well as minimizing emissions from steel,” says Virta-Toikka.
