We will continue to live up to our responsibility and actively contribute to preserving quality of life for future generations. STIHL supports implementation of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which set out an internationally applicable framework for business operations that are sustainable at the environmental, economic and social level. That’s why we are moving ahead ambitiously, setting standards in our industry, and in doing so helping to achieve the UN’s global sustainability goals.

As a family-owned company which operates internationally, STIHL takes a holistic approach to meeting its sustainability responsibilities. That applies in the areas of environmental protection, the circular economy, and our duty of care.
Nature is our working environment – we are committed to achieving a high level of environmental protection and resource efficiency. We strive for continuous improvement in our processes as well as our products. This means that wherever possible we protect natural resources, reduce long-term energy consumption, and use energy sparingly. Our goal is to make our operations climate-neutral and sustainable.
As part of tried-and-trusted STIHL quality, we offer our customers a comprehensive product portfolio of petrol-driven, electric and battery power tools in which sustainability considerations are incorporated right from the initial product idea. STIHL products have always been characterized by exceptionally long service life, repairability and high quality – all features that mean they help to protect resources and prevent waste.
