Promoting sustainable development and green lifestyle through IKEA designs

This is the lesson about the idea of developing a sustainable ecosystem in which both human and nature are center. This idea was generated by IKEA – the world’s largest furniture retailer.

In the IKEA Sustainability Report FY20, IKEA highlighted their vision for contributing to sustainable development by 2030, stating that: “To meet the challenges of unsustainable consumption, climate change, and growing inequality, we are – in collaboration with partners, co-workers, and customers – taking ambitious steps towards a more sustainable future.” (IKEA, 2020). By strongly focusing on increasing the use of sustainable materials, plant-based foods, renewable energy and more, IKEA continues to make positive change with a look towards the goal of becoming climate positive by 2030.
