Ikea to Reach Carbon Positive Goal by 2030

Annual carbon emissions down 6 percent despite record sales




Ikea (Delft, The Netherlands) is on track to reach climate positivity by 2030, according to Reuters. The furniture brand’s annual carbon emissions reportedly fell 6 percent from pre-pandemic numbers despite record sales.

“We have (since baseline year 2016) managed to do a third of what our ambition is for 2030 so we are well on track. Then there are big challenges ahead, and we need to put all our energy and efforts into securing that we continue on a positive trend towards this goal,” Inter IKEA CEO Jon Abrahamsson said.

Though materials like wood, paper and plastics added to the brand’s carbon footprint, the drop in total emissions is credited to the use of more renewable energy as well as the sale of more energy-efficient light bulbs and plant-based food.
