We're urging Amazon, The Home Depot, IKEA, Target and Walmart to lead the way to clean, zero-emission shipping.
Ship_Meh Meh Ship significa que IKEA ha trazado un camino más limpio, pero debe ir más allá.

IKEA se enorgullece de ser un líder sostenible en el sector de la venta al por menor, pero su uso de barcos sucios y con combustibles fósiles para transportar sus productos a través de nuestros océanos cuenta una historia diferente.


IKEA's Shipping Emissions

IKEA has made strides toward cutting their pollution through committing to a circular supply chain within the next 10 years — but the company has failed to take this sustainable leadership to the seas.

The retailer continues to ship goods overseas on dirty, heavily-polluting ships, showing a blatant disregard for the gravity of our climate crisis and for the health of port and coastal communities who bear the brunt of ocean shipping pollution.

In 2021, IKEA’s fossil-fueled ocean shipping emitted over 82K metric tons of carbon dioxide — and that’s just for its imports into the U.S.! It’s time for IKEA to commit to climate leadership by committing to clean, zero-emission ships by 2030.

IKEA’s dirty ships also pollute our air, emitting toxins linked to asthma, cancer and risk of death from respiratory-based illnesses like COVID-19, particularly in port communities and communities of color.

IKEA’s Pledge to Ship It Zero

IKEA has committed to Ship it Zero by 2040 as a member of Cargo Owners for Zero Emissions Vessels. While this commitment is significant and promising, it’s a decade too late. In order to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius — the benchmark suggested by the scientific community to avoid the worst elements of global warming — we need IKEA to make a bolder, earlier zero-emission transition.


IKEA’s Zero-Emission Opportunity

IKEA must take its climate commitments to the seas. True climate action means zero emissions — and that means cutting ship pollution from dirty, fossil-fueled ships. It’s time for IKEA to fully commit to climate leadership by committing to clean, zero-emission ships this decade, no later than 2030. We’re urging IKEA to stop moving products on fossil-fueled ships by 2030 — 10 years earlier than their 2040 commitment.
