IKEA believes that a more sustainable life starts at home and wants to make sustainable living accessible and affordable for the many people. Now IKEA U.S. will become the latest Ingka Group market to start making home solar energy solutions easier to access in select locations in the state of California.
“Our vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people, and we believe those lives are truly better when they are lived sustainably,” said Javier Quiñones, CEO & Chief Sustainability Officer, IKEA U.S.. “We are delighted to join the list of global IKEA markets that provide access to home solar and energy solutions, and we will continue to collaborate with our partners to showcase offerings that have a positive impact on people and our planet.”
IKEA wants to build the biggest renewable energy movement together with co-workers, customers, and partners around the world, to help tackle climate change together.
By offering services beyond home furnishing to enable a better life at home, IKEA wants to make healthier and more sustainable living possible for the many people and enable the use of clean energy in smart and efficient ways.
