Sustainability with IKEA – Summary

IKEA is taking bolder actions to address some of the most urgent challenges linked to climate change, unsustainable consumption and inequality. Last week their Sustainability Manager for APAC Distribution Services, Josh Zhou, presented the global IKEA sustainability strategy for a full house at @D.O.C in Shanghai.

IKEA will continue to have strong focus on collaboration and co-creation in their “People and Planet Positive”-approach. Their 2030 commitment includes circular services, sustainable living labs, home solar and the roll out of LIVE LAGOM.

Fun fact: Did you know that their TOMAT spray bottle is made out of 25 % recycled content of which 10 % is internal waste?

@IKEA has a bold ambition – by 2020 all single use plastic products such as straws will be removed from restaurants.



Thank you @IKEA for presenting at our event and for helping us raise awareness about our NoPlastic! campaign.
