Dear members of the lawn & landscape industry, for the umpteenth year in a row, Kohler takes part in the Lawn & Landscape Top 100, with a deep sense of pride in what we have built with this association and with a sense of gratitude to all members who actively participate and make their knowledge and resources available to the community. Mutual support is something truly special and is what sets the Lawn & Landscape industry apart from all other associations, and what has driven us to achieve some excellent results as companies.
It is important to mention that these are times of great change for our industry, with new technologies and innovations emerging at a rapid pace. The industry is adapting and growing with new ways to improve the services and offerings that we provide to our clients. As members of the Lawn & Landscape industry, we have the opportunity to stay on the cutting edge of these developments and to continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in the field of landscaping.
Kohler has recently introduced a new corporate strategy that aims to create a more sustainable future, with a plan to transform the company from a power producer to an energy supplier. We understand that the current and future scenario of our industry can be complex, but we are responding with determination and an unwavering commitment to making a positive impact.
We are not just talking about change; we are taking concrete steps to make it happen. The pillars of Kohler’s new strategy include the use of alternative fuels, the development of electric and hybrid solutions to achieve the zero-emissions mantra, and the development of green-fuel engines including hydrogen.
The decarbonization of our industry is a key step toward achieving our goals for the environment but it also represents an opportunity for us to strengthen the industry’s capacity for innovation and competitiveness. Together as a Top 100 list, we are making a real difference, and I am excited to see what the future holds for us all as we continue to evolve in this ever-changing landscape.
