" Striving for 100% renewable energy (electricity,

heating, cooling and fuels) across the IKEA value

chain"

The role of renewable energy solutions in mitigating climate change is proven. The heavy reliance on fossil fuels and inefficient and outdated coal-fired power plants is one of the main reasons for the energy sector’s high contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions. This not only elevates global temperatures but seriously impacts on air quality and human health. Transitioning to renewable energies therefore supports significant progress on the Paris Agreement on climate change, as well as on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The RE100 initiative was launched in 2014 to bring together influential businesses to commit to 100% renewable electricity by 2050. You can find out which companies have signed up, and more about their commitments in the RE100 company list.

Methodology

For this metric question you are being asked to identify whether the company has made a commitment to use 100% renewable electricity by a specified future year.

If the company is a RE100 member, you can find further details about their commitment on the RE100 company list. If the company is not a member, they may have made the commitment on their website, in a policy document or in a sustainability report. 

The following categorical answer options are designed to cover all possible answers to this question (i.e. Unknown is never a correct answer)

  • Already Achieved: The company has already achieved 100% renewable electricity in its operations. Add in the comments by what year they have achieved this if the information is available
  • By 2020: The company has committed to 100% renewable electricity by 2020
  • By 2030: The company has committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2021 up to 2030
  • By 2040The company has committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2031 up to 2040
  • By 2050The company has committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2041 up to 2050
  • After 2050The company has committed to achieving 100% renewable electricity by 2051 or later
  • No: Select this option if you cannot find a reference to a renewable energy committment in the appropriate sources
