IKEA is taking action, but the Government can enable more businesses to drive positive changes for people and planet.

Enabling people to live a healthier, more sustainable life at home is one of IKEA's key ambitions and we offer affordable products for water and energy efficiency, and solutions for renewable energy and waste sorting.

We welcome the £2bn Green Homes Grant announced by Rishi Sunak today to help make homes more energy efficient, and we're pleased to see sustainable goals form part of the post-Covid economic recovery.

However, more ambitious measures need to be introduced for the UK to successfully deliver Net Zero by 2050, including wider decarbonisation and electric vehicles and circular economy infrastructure.

We also urge more action to drive energy efficiency in commercial buildings. Businesses are currently not encouraged to invest in energy efficiency, due to a lack of incentives, support and information.
