Our sustainability approach

Corporate responsibility is the management of a company’s impact on society and the environment. It is closely related to the vision of sustainable development – balancing economic aspects with environmental and social.  

Husqvarna Group creates value for its customers and other key stakeholders, while striving to keep negative impacts to a minimum. We believe that the best approach is to integrate the sustainability approach in the Group’s processes. In some areas, this has been done for a long time, such as thinking of ergonomics and on emissions when designing products. 

To us, the goal is clear: we want to become a more sustainable company.
