The emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere causes climate change, and this has serious economic, environmental and social consequences. STIHL supports the target set in the Paris Climate Agreement of limiting global warming to significantly below 2° Celsius in order to reduce the risks and effects of climate change. This is because as a global leading manufacturer of chainsaws and power tools for the forestry and agricultural sectors, for horticulture and landscaping and the construction industry, STIHL bears a particularly heavy environmental responsibility. As a company we are committed to environmental protection at the highest level and to the continuous optimisation of company processes and products alike. After all, it is only from an intact environment that we can shape our future.
Our climate strategy adopts short-term measures for protecting the environment within our direct sphere of responsibility as well as activities designed to have a long-term positive impact above and beyond our company boundaries.
