IKEA Sustainable Everyday: Phasing Out Single Use PlasticView the policy document
Key FindingsView the policy document
IKEA implemented a successful phase out of all SUPP in store, including home furnishing range, restaurants and bistro. Plastic packaging is still required for food however, but this is said to come from renewable or recyclable sources. There is little information available about how this policy was implemented, but it was successful.This has led to further plastic action, such as the goal to phase out the use of plastic packaging by 2028, introduced in 2021. The phase-out will happen in steps, starting with all new range by 2025, and running range by 2028.
Through an analytical framework, we've reviewed over 100 plastic policies. These reviews determine the effectiveness of policies in reducing plastic pollution and we offer recommendations in light of this evidence, to enhance future policy making.
