The Swedish-based furniture chain recently announced a new green initiative Ikea is phasing out sales of all lighting that is not LED-based by 2016 “in an effort to help customers save energy, reduce electricity bills, and cut carbon emissions.”
Ikea is the first major home furnishing retailer with a U.S. presence to entirely banish less efficient lighting. The company has plans to replace more than a million store lights with LEDs.
Ikea’s other green initiatives include the phasing out of plastic bags in 2007 and incandescent bulbs in 2010.
