Husqvarna Group's Sustainovate Progress Report is now available to download.

The manufacturer says Sustainovate is their way of combining sustainability with its innovation capability.

Henric Andersson, CEO and President of Husqvarna Group, said, "Sustainability is at the center and fully integrated into the Husqvarna Group strategy and business. Electrification encapsulates our ambition to lead the industry transition into low-carbon, resource-smart solutions. Through innovation, collaboration and driving the transition together with our customers we can really make a difference and contribute to the goal of limiting temperature rise to 1.5° C."

Growing the market for electrified products is what the company say is key for the Group’s aspiration to reduce absolute CO2 emissions. During the year the Group raised its ambitions for electrification to reach 67% of (motorised) sales within five years including double the sales of robotic mowers.

The company's Sustainovate 2025 project encompasses three main opportunities - Carbon, Circular and People. Some of the year's highlights:

Carbon: The group has achieved a -27% reduction in CO2 emissions since 2015 and stays committed to reducing another 8% over the next four years to reach the target of –35% by 2025. Two key battery solutions were launched, the CEORA professional robotic mower and K 1 PACE power cutter, marking the start of electrification in two professional segments.

Circular: The Group stays on track to achieve the target of launching 50 circular innovations before 2025. This year, the Group launched two circular innovations and nine are under consideration. EcoLine – Gardena Division’s range of garden tools made with recyclable material – received the German Sustainability Reward for sustainable products.

People: By 2025 the Group will have empowered 5 million customers and colleagues to make sustainable choices. This will be achieved through partnerships, learning from others and engaging in issues with an opportunity to affect change.
