John Ellis, Ikea’s Centennial store manager stated, “This is another example of the Ikea commitment to create a more sustainable life for communities where we operate.” The company has set a goal of being energy independent by 2020. To reach its goal, Ikea has recently installed solar panels on 39 of its 44 locations.
In addition, the company currently recycles waste material, and uses energy efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems. Ikea has also stopped using plastic bags and accepts fluorescent bulbs for recycling.
