DELFT, The Netherlands – Top 100 retailer and furniture giant Ikea just released its 2022 reports on sustainability and climate and showed progress on the company’s sustainability commitments for 2030. Key metrics include a 12% reduction of the company’s total climate footprint in absolute terms and a 20% decrease in relative terms compared to 2016, according to the company.
“With six years of CO2 budget left in the world to limit global warming to 1.5 (degrees) Celsius, the need to act is more important than ever,” said Jon Abrahamsson Ring, CEO, Inter Ikea Group. “We are committed to doing our part, taking a full value chain approach, working towards becoming climate positive and securing a just transition. We strive to take a holistic approach to our sustainability work, as climate change, nature loss and inequality are interdependent.”
“Every year, more than 2.4 billion people are exposed to dangerous levels of air pollution,” said Andreas Rangel Ahrens, head of climate, Inter Ikea Group. “There is a strong synergy between reducing GHG emissions and air pollution. With this report, we are taking the lead by being one of the first to disclose the air pollution generated across our value chain.
“Even though more work is needed, we hope that by transparently sharing our findings, we inspire other companies to also address air pollution while taking climate action.”
