Welcome to the light ages
By only offering LED lighting in the IKEA product range, IKEA customers have been able to reduce the energy consumption around the globe.
Estimated energy reduction per year worldwide*:
* Assuming that the customer changes one incandescent light bulb
to an LED bulb and that it’s lit 3h/day for one year.
This year, RYET LED light bulb was launched with an astounding low retail price. Making LED light truly affordable for the many.
Plastic being reborn
We are working hard to use less and less new raw material in IKEA products. For example in 2017, 11 million old PET bottles were turned into KUNGSBACKA kitchen fronts. Giving plastic a new lease on life.
Recycled 0.5 L PET bottles worldwide: 11 million
