Ikea launches new sustainability programme

PETALING JAYA: Ikea Malaysia has launched a new sustainability programme called “The Never Ending list” that outlines the store’s commitment to extending its social and environmental responsibility to its cust omers, co-workers and suppliers.

 

As part of the programme’s initiatives, the home furnishing store will help customers dispose of old bulbs. Customers also get a 50% discount off its Sparsam brand low-energy bulbs E27 11W that is normally priced at RM29.90 for two pieces. The promotion is valid until April 24.

“This is just a small step to make it possible for customers to live a sustainable life in their homes. Low-energy bulbs reduce electricity consumption by up to 80% and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs. It’s important to dispose of the old bulbs in a proper way because they contain mercury.


King: It's important to

“If the bulb is broken it should be put in a can with lid,” said Ikea Malaysia’s store manager Mike King.

There are lots of other items on “The Never Ending list” that the store believes would make the world a better place to live in.

“With examples provided through The Never Ending list, customers can shop at Ikea and take pride in living an affordable and sustainable life at home. We hope the improvements will inspire customers to make positive changes to help people and the environment,” King said.

“We will continue to integrate sustainability in everything we do, as well as take new and innovative steps together with our co-workers, customers, suppliers and other partners,” he added.

The Never Ending list outlines Ikea’s accomplishments and efforts in areas such as products and materials, suppliers, energy and transport, and community involvement. More information can be found on www.malaysia-IKEA.com/never_ending_job
