- Designing all IKEA products with new circular principles, with the goal to only use renewable and recycled materials

- Removing all single-use plastic products from the IKEA range globally and from customer and co-worker restaurants in stores by 2020
- Becoming climate positive and reducing the total IKEA climate footprint by an average of 70% per product
- Achieving zero emissions home deliveries by 2025.

IKEA sustainability manager Lena Pripp-Kovac said: ““Becoming truly circular means meeting people’s changing lifestyles, prolonging the life of products and materials and using resources in a smarter way. To make this a reality, we will design all products from the very beginning to be repurposed, repaired, reused, resold and recycled.”
