The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. Climate change threatens this for people today and for generations to come. Around the world people are increasingly experiencing the effects of climate change through severe weather and natural disasters like heatwaves, floods and fires. Recent years have been the hottest to date, global temperatures have reached more than 1.1°C above pre-industrial levels and this is already having a measurable impact on our business. We must act now, while securing a just transition so that nobody is left behind.
IKEA is committed to the Paris Agreement and to limiting global temperature rises to 1.5°C, aiming to be climate positive by 2030 (see box) and to reach net-zero latest 2050.
