In An 'All-In' Commitment to Sustainability, Ikea Expands Supply-Chain Control

By

Ikea is following the footsteps of fellow corporate bigwigs by extending control across its supply chain. The company has already bought up Romanian and Baltic forests and Polish wind farms in its previously stated efforts to go "all in" on leading the way for corporate sustainability. Now, The Guardian reports that the home-furnishings giant has invested in a plastic recycling plant in the Netherlands.

By extending this sort of reach across industries impacting Ikea, the Swedish furniture maker is able to ensure more sustainable practices and avoid getting mixed up in deforestation practices and plastic waste.
