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.
