IKEA in the Community
IKEA Charlotte continues making a difference

IKEA Charlotte continues to make a difference in the lives of others in the Charlotte region.

In early December, we partnered with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control for our first IKEA Charlotte Animal Adoption event. We gave away coffee and cinnamon buns to people who came to adopt as well as goodie bags with items from our LURVIG pet line for people who took home their forever pets.

Later in December, we worked with the Latin American Coalition on a makeover of their Refugee Welcome Center.

In early January, we partnered with Central Piedmont Community College to transform a 10' x 10' meeting room on its campus into a Collegiate Recovery (CRC) room, where students in recovery from addictions can hold support meetings.

May 11, IKEA Charlotte will be a sponsor of The HEARTest Yard 5k that benefits the Levine Children's Hospital.

We also support the LGBTQ community and will be once again participating in Charlotte Pride in August.

Check back for more events and information about how IKEA Charlotte is working with community organizations to improve the lives of people in the Charlotte region.

People & Planet
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 the 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 toward 100% renewable energy - producing as much as we consume in operations - and sourcing all of our wood from more sustainable sources by 2020.

IKEA Charlotte is a part of this bold action plan.

In 2013, IKEA Charlotte plugged in its 4,228-panel solar energy system, which was built atop its roof. IKEA Charlotte's solar energy system produces 1,330,000 kWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent of reducing 938 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), eliminating the emissions of 195 cars or powering 140 homes yearly.

IKEA Charlotte also hosts recycling and composting workshops and participates in many other Earth-friendly activities.
