Corporate responsibility has a long tradition at STIHL. As a medium-sized family-owned company, we believe we have a special obligation to society. We fulfill this obligation in many ways, for example with voluntary social benefits for our employees, with attractive apprenticeships and traineeships, and with social involvement close to our sites. Continuity and a long-term view guide our actions, and are part of our understanding of sustainability, just like resource-conserving production and the STIHL products with built-in environmental protection. The focal points of our social responsibility are in the areas of sustainable business operations, employees, the environment and education.
