IKEA Takes Active Role in Global Emission Reduction
[International]  Burlington, Ontario -- IKEA has announced that they will support the Joint Business Declaration, an EU business call for 30% emissions reduction by 2020 founded by The Climate Group, University of Cambridge Programme for Sustainability and WWF Climate Savers.
The Joint Business Declaration is supported by Stop Climate Chaos, a climate change coalition of primarily environmental and international development NGOs. IKEA’s support means that IKEA is engaged to discuss how the retailer can collaborate on helping achieve an exciting, affordable low carbon society.
“Globally at IKEA, we share the view that ambitious action from the EU will drive green growth, innovation and investment. We are committed to a long term strategy where all IKEA Group stores and buildings will be supplied with 100% renewable energy.” says Steve Howard, Chief Sustainability Officer, IKEA Group. “In addition, we want to improve our overall energy efficiency by 25 percent compared with 2005.”
"On a local level, IKEA Canada continues to be committed to minimizing carbon emissions through our energy reduction initiatives; increasing waste reduction, recycling and sorting at source; investing in clean and renewable energy technologies; and aggressively challenging our new build and retrofit stores to be increasingly more energy efficient"
Kerri Molinaro, President, IKEA Canada

“Joining initiatives like Joint Business Declaration are consistent with what IKEA has set out to do and can help governments build a case for action.”
In addition to what they are doing, IKEA also wants to help its customers live a more sustainable life at home with energy saving products and solutions. As just a couple of examples, the retailer has greatly expanded their range of LED light bulbs, having phased out selling incandescent bulbs and have worked hard to significantly reduce the cost on induction hobs which are far more energy efficient.
