Keynote: Balancing Profitability and Sustainability at IKEA

Sep 19 2023

8:45 AM - 9:15 AM EDT

IKEA has committed to reducing the climate footprint from its buildings by 80% by 2030 and has a roadmap for all existing units to eliminate fossil fuels from existing sites. This presentation by Adrian Avino, Engineering Construction Manager, focuses on the company’s mandate to use renewable heating and cooling (RHC) projects across its North American portfolio. IKEA’s engineering design eliminates fossil fuels from its operations, implementing more efficient RHC systems that have HVAC systems with higher coefficient of performance (COP) and may have higher upfront costs but have a lower total life-cycle cost (TLC), reducing the environmental impact of energy production, maximizing on-site energy production, and supporting the development of clean and sustainable energy technologies. Learn how IKEA plans to meet its goals while balancing profitability and sustainability through its holistic approach.
