The IKEA vision has always been to create a better everyday life for the many people. Unfortunately, climate change threatens this, both for people today and for generations to come. Recent years have been the hottest to date and we have already reached more than 1°C above pre-industrial levels. Now is the time to act, while securing a just transition so that nobody is left behind.
Our climate footprint covers the entire lifecycle of our products – from the extraction and processing of raw materials, the stores and touch points where we meet our customers, to the use and end-of-life of our products. We have a big responsibility – and many opportunities – to make a positive difference when it comes to climate change.
We are committed to the Paris Agreement and to contribute to limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This includes a commitment to halve the absolute net GHG emissions from the total IKEA value chain by 2030 by drastically reducing GHG emissions and removing and storing carbon from the atmosphere.
