IKEA Enviroment-Based Articles

Ikea just invested in two giant solar farms

It’s all part of the furniture company’s plan to go carbon-negative.


Ikea started putting solar panels on the roofs of its stores, distribution centers, and other buildings in 2011 to help cut its carbon footprint, and now has 900,000 of its own panels. But the retailer has huge energy requirements and a goal to produce even more renewable energy than it uses—and to get a step closer to that goal, it’s just invested in two sprawling new solar farms. They are the company’s first off-site solar plants.
