The Built Environment Statistics from the American Institute of Architects: U.S. buildings consume 17% of the water, 33% of the energy, 40% of the raw materials, and 66% of the electricity worldwide, while contributing 40% of the landfill waste and 10% of the particulate emissions. ThyssenKrupp Elevator’s response: We have just completed a thorough life-cycle-analysis that clearly illustrates • Gate-to-Cradle: the use cycle of an elevator has a greater environmental impact than • Cradle-to-Gate: the entire manufacturing process. Therefore we are focusing on reducing our own environmental footprint as a company, while reducing the operating impacts of both NEW and EXISTING elevators. 2
