Respect for the environment in how we act and work is a tradition at gardening power tool manufacturer VIKING. For many years we have been implementing a proactive environmental policy and pursuing sustainability strategies. We already successfully completed certification of our environmental management system to the international standard ISO 14001 some time ago. Now we have added another official endorsement - VIKING has been entitled to use the title "klimaaktiv" since the end of last year VIKING.
The "klimaaktiv" distinction was awarded by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, a fitting recognition of our efforts in this area. By switching over to LED lighting in large sections of the company, VIKING saves 100 tonnes of CO2 each year. In addition, VIKING has voluntarily signed up to identify and implement other energy-efficiency measures in the coming years.
VIKING GmbH, based in Langkampfen, produces and sells lawn mowers, robotic mowers, ride-on mowers, scarifiers, garden shredders and tillers. VIKING is a member of the STIHL Group and achieved a turnover of €193.9 million with 373 employees in 2015. Sales partners are service-providing specialist dealers.
