STIGA’s product portfolio is one of the most comprehensive in the market, with tools suitable for any garden task or season. Our target consumer is the private householder, including owners of small gardens and balconies up to the largest and most complex lawn surfaces.
Green Care and Sustainability
The centrality of nature to individual and collective health and well-being is evident in the emerging concept of STIGA’s concept of Green Care, which is essentially an active process intended to promote or improve health and well-being, as opposed to a purely passive experience of nature. When it comes to creating wellbeing benefits, the Green Care approach highlights that the natural environment is not simply a backdrop, but its colours, sounds, and fresh air should be actively experienced, yet through garden care. The team know that their Sustainability Strategy is entwined in this ethos and their three solid pillars – People, Products and Processes – guide their goals.
STIGA continues to invest in the evolution of its packaging. In 2022, the team set out a target to have at least 60% recycled materials in packaging across global production. This goal was reached by hitting 61%. Nevertheless, work continues to increase this mix while still ensuring sturdy packages.
In 2022 STIGA achieved the electrification of a range of garden tools–mowers for small to large gardens, hand-held tools for a variety of garden needs and snow throwers. This builds on one of the core pillars of the Company’s strategy: product electrification to contribute to a more sustainable planet. As the team designs products with sustainability in mind, they also consider the other benefits we can bring to consumers through battery-powered products.
Mulching is a technique that involves mowing the lawn without collecting the grass clippings. The mower cuts the grass multiple times into extra-fine particles that are then blown back onto the lawn to decompose and return valuable nutrients back into the soil. STIGA has always believed in the potential of mulching and more than 88% of the lawn care products sold in 2022 are“mulch-ready”.
Looking ahead to 2024, STIGA expects to compile an even deeper assessment of its ESG opportunities and the impact on the environment, with facts and data which will then strengthen the improvement strategy.
