Climate & Energy

Urgent action is needed to tackle climate change, which is why the IKEA Group is committed to producing as much renewable energy as it consumes in its operations by 2030.

Investing in wind and solar, IKEA will produce as much renewable energy as we consume by 2020.

Investments in wind and solar
Since 2009, IKEA Group has invested 2.6 CAD billion in renewable energy. We have committed to own and operate 416 offsite wind turbines and have installed around 750,000 solar panels on IKEA buildings. In our 2017 fiscal year, we generated renewable energy equivalent to 73% of the energy we used across our operations.

Did you know IKEA Canada owns two wind farms in Alberta that together generate renewable energy equivalent to four times our total consumption?

Winds of change blow in Canada

Wintering Hills - Wind farm
IKEA Canada's second wind farm was acquired in 2017. Located near Drumheller, Alberta, the project features 55 turbines with a generation capacity of 88 MW. It generates enough electricity to power 54 IKEA stores or 26,000 Canadian homes.

Oldman 2 - Wind farm
Acquired in 2013, this wind farm is located in Pincher Creek, Alberta. Its 20 turbines provide generation capacity of 46 MW, enough to power 32 IKEA stores or 15 000 Canadian homes.

We’ve gone all in with LED
