Forerunner in designing products from reused or renewable materials
IKEA’s next goal is to re-design the material production. “IKEA wants to contribute to a transformational change in the industry and to the development of plastics made from recycled or renewable sources”, explains Lena Pripp-Kovac, Sustainability Manager at IKEA of Sweden.
IKEA wants to have a positive impact on people and planet, which includes taking a lead in turning waste into resources, developing reverse material flows for waste materials and ensuring key parts of IKEA’s range are easily recycled. IKEA’s long-term ambition is for the plastic material used in their home furnishing products to be renewable or recycled material.
