IKEA commits to zero emissions targets for home delivery in five major cities by 2020

IKEA Group takes the next step towards reaching 100 percent zero emissions home deliveries.

The company announced an accelerated timeline for transitioning to EV in five major inner cities – Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Shanghai – by 2020.

“We challenge ourselves and inspire others as we can only achieve the change that’s needed together. For us it’s crucial to grow our business in a sustainable way– that’s why we’re speeding up the transition to EV in five inner-city areas. By 2020 all our home deliveries in central Amsterdam, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Shanghai will be by EV or other zero-emission solutions,” says Jesper Brodin, CEO, IKEA Group (Ingka Holding B.V. and its controlled entities).

IKEA also aims to halve relative emissions from co-workers and customers traveling to IKEA Group touchpoints by 2030.
