Climate change is acknowledged as one of society’s greatest challenges, and a major point of focus for IKEA — one that strongly impacts the IKEA vision to create a better everyday life for the many people. By 2030 the ambition is to become climate positive by reducing more greenhouse gas emissions than the IKEA value chain emits, while growing the IKEA business.
