Javier Quiñones, CEO and chief sustainability officer of IKEA US, told reporters that their company’s mission is to help people live sustainable lives. He further says that by providing solar panels to customers, they provide necessary choices for those who want to live a sustainable lifestyle.

“At IKEA, we are passionate about helping our customers live more sustainable lives at home. We are proud to partner with SunPower to bring this service to the United States and empower our customers to make individual choices aimed at reducing their overall climate footprint,” said Quiñones.

The Swedish company is on a mission to reduce its carbon footprint and improve sustainable living. By selling environmentally friendly products, Ikea aims to reduce its carbon footprint and increase sustainability. Previously, the company announced that it would buy back its used furniture in a bid to embrace sustainability. The company also announced the purchase of forest land in Georgia for conservation purposes.

Like Ikea, more and more brands are now implementing strategies that will reduce their carbon footprint. It is these small steps that are needed to help the world move away from heavy carbon pollution.
