IKEA is committed to becoming climate positive by 2030 by reducing more greenhouse gases than our total value chain emits — while growing the IKEA business. We are committed to the Paris Agreement and to helping limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This includes a commitment to become net-zero at the latest by 2050 — and to halve greenhouse gas emissions in absolute terms from the total IKEA value chain by 2030.
At IKEA, we are guided by our vision to create a better everyday life for the many people. A better planet is a better home for us all. But climate change threatens this — for people today and for generations to come. Scientists say that we need immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions if we want to limit global warming rise to 1.5°C or even 2°C from pre-industrial levels.
As stubborn optimists, we believe that we can create a better future. Many of the solutions already exist, and now all of us – businesses, governments and people – need to act. We’re proud to be a Partner of COP26, the UN climate conference. With world leaders gathered together, this is a historic opportunity to turn the tide on climate change.
