Managing Our Environment
Over the past decade, STIHL has made significant investments in research and development to address our environmental footprint. STIHL is dedicated to developing products that are environmentally responsible. We are proud that our product line features some of the best available technologies and some of the cleanest running outdoor power equipment available today. STIHL will continue to work toward socially responsible environmental stewardship both in operation and manufacturing. We are also working to increase environmental awareness in our vendors and business partners. At the end of the day, caring for nature is the very basis of our operation.
STIHL partners with agencies and organizations that encourage the responsible use of natural resources, promote sustainable growth woodlands and support the continuing of our future farmers and agribusiness professionals.
A long-term proponent of responsible forest management, STIHL believes we can all work together to keep our country clean, green and beautiful.

Indeed, battery-powered tools produce zero exhaust emissions while eliminating the need for fuel. Available in four tiers of performance, STIHL battery products allow you to do as much work as fuel-powered products with no gradual loss of power. Choose the greener solution that doesn’t sacrifice performance.
STIHL also produces a line of corded-electric equipment that offers the quality, performance and safety features our customers expect from STIHL, while minimizing environmental impact.
STIHL uses a variety of engine technologies to provide powerful, lightweight equipment that delivers low emissions, increased fuel efficiency, low noise, and decreased maintenance.

Non-Petroleum Based Lubricants and Oils
Non-petroleum based lubricants and oils provide a highly biodegradable, more environmentally responsible alternative to traditional oils. These ester- or vegetable-based oils are less harmful to humans, animals, microorganisms, and plants.
