Sustainability is part of a long tradition at STIHL, where continuity and long-term thinking have always been key elements of our business approach. As a medium-sized family-run company, we feel a special sense of obligation to our staff, the environment and society. We embrace our corporate responsibility in many ways, for example with voluntary social contributions for employees, interesting training places and local social outreach. Our sense of responsibility has evolved over a period of decades and is firmly rooted in our corporate culture.

At STIHL, sustainability means products with integrated environmental protection and resource-friendly production processes. With our climate strategy, we have set ourselves the target of achieving long-term carbon neutrality for the entire STIHL Group. The guidelines informing our corporate actions are defined in our sustainability policy. The main areas of focus are sustainable enterprise, employees, environment, education and society.
