IKEA Goes Renewable

The long term direction is for all IKEA Group buildings to be supplied with renewable energy. In addition, we want to improve the IKEA Group's overall energy efficiency by 25 percent compared with 2005. Among other things we will use energy-saving light bulbs where possible, will have the lights on only when warehouses are open, and will install extra insulation to save on energy for heating and cooling.
Then we are going to make sure that all IKEA Group stores, warehouses, distribution centres, factories and offices are heated and cooled using renewable fuels such as wind, water, solar power, biofuels and geothermal energy.
