We love electric cars!
At IKEA, sustainability means ensuring environmental, economic and social well-being for today and tomorrow. That’s why we have electric vehicle charging stations available for our visitors and our community to use. We want to enable our customers to live more sustainable lives, and this journey begins at our stores.

Electric vehicles have zero tailpipe emissions. By offering EV charging stations, we are supporting our visitors to reduce their carbon footprint. This furthers our commitment to have a positive impact on people and the planet.

Don’t forget to bring your Blink Incard to charge your car while you shop!

IKEA is all-in for cotton from more sustainable sources
As of September 1, 2015 – all cotton used in the future production of IKEA products will come from more sustainable sources.

Cotton from more sustainable sources means that the cotton is grown with less water, less chemical fertilizer and less pesticides, while increasing profit margins for farmers leading to a better quality of life for their families, including schooling for their children through our collaborations with UNICEF and Save the Children.

Cotton is an important raw material for IKEA, used in many products, from sofas to towels. However, when grown conventionally, cotton farming uses large amounts of chemicals and water, raising costs and making it harder for farmers to earn a living. This milestone is part of a long journey to help transform the cotton industry. In 2010, IKEA together with the conservation organization WWF and other leading public and private organisations helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI).
Solar panels installed
As part of our commitment to sustainability, IKEA has installed a solar energy system atop this store. The 123,300 square foot array consists of a 1,008-kW system, built with approximately 4,200 panels.

The IKEA Philadelphia solar program will produce approximately 1,220,700 kWh of clean electricity annually - the equivalent of reducing 842 tons of carbon dioxide, eliminating the emissions of 165 cars or powering 105 homes yearly.
