Husqvarna to Reduce Emissions

Husqvarna Consumer Outdoor Products has agreed to pay a $2.85 million civil penalty to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Air Act, according to the Department of Justice and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The agreement is a result of Husqvarna’s failure to provide EPA with complete and accurate emissions testing information relating to engines used in handheld lawn, garden and forestry equipment manufactured during the 2011-2013 period.

As a result of EPA’s investigation, Husqvarna agreed to reduce its emission credit balance by approximately 1,700 tons and improve quality assurance measures.
