We’re going all-in for a more sustainable future

At IKEA, we want to have a positive impact on people and the planet. That’s why we’re going all-in on things that really matter, from switching our entire lighting range to energy-efficient LED to sourcing all of the cotton we use in our products from more sustainable sources. 

We’re also working towards 100% renewable energy - producing as much as we consume in our operations - and sourcing all of our wood from more sustainable sources by 2020. Since 2009, the IKEA Group has committed to invest EUR 2.1 billion in purchasing our own wind and solar power generation equipment. But we’re not done yet. We’re just getting started…

Sustainable life at home

IKEA has loads of money-saving products and solutions to help you save energy, water, reduce waste and live healthily. All the small things add up.
Solar panels

IKEA home solar and battery storage

We know that you care about the world you live in, and so do we. That’s why IKEA is bringing the world’s most sustainable energy source to your home. We’ve teamed up with Solarcentury, the UK’s leading solar company, a partnership that can be trusted to deliver the most affordable solutions on the market.

Designed to work alongside your existing solar panels or as part of a new combined home solar system, battery storage will make it much easier to save on your electricity bills by utilising more of the electricity generated by your solar panels.
