From The Conference August 29, 2022

“When we all act, we are reinforcing each other to act.”

 “This planet is our only home - not the moon, not Mars.”


It is more important than ever to guide the policymakers on how to reduce emissions. To avoid the worst, we have to halve our emissions by 2030 and reach net-zero in 2050. We need to understand our own footprint, and share where we struggle. By having a common goal we are brought together - it’s about making the switch to renewable energy, making transportation systems zero-emission, and about closing the loop on materials and products as well as food.


Karol Gobczyski is the Head of Climate and Energy at Ingka Group, responsible for developing climate and energy strategy. He shows us how Ikea is driving change throughout the organisation, to reach net zero emissions. Making the switch towards renewables and closing the loops for the products with a circular business model.
