IKEA's Leadership Continues to Be Impressive in Following Up Sustainability Pledges with Sustainability Action
Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci penned “I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough: we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
IKEA has long shown #leadership in #sustainability ambitions, not only with pledges but also the act of doing, ‘walking the talk’ to deliver on #sustainabledevelopment goals.
Great to see of the latest of action from the Swedish multinational, which commits IKEA to supporting a broader #supplier mix — across a further 10 geographic markets — as they re-gear and transition to #renewableenergy.
Nearly two-thirds of IKEA’s global #climate footprint is related to its #supplychain, including #manufacturing taking place at its #suppliers. This being the case, and because IKEA is committed to becoming climate positive, the company has opted for #collaboration, actively and widely, to initiate change not only within its directly-managed and operated sphere but also beyond, across the #supply chain #ecosystem.
How can you better take forward your words, your pledges, your commitments into the beautiful space that so inspired Leonardo da Vinci: the act of ‘doing?'
