    • Hi Jean-Claude,
      Really good question. Greenwashing is so pervasive right now that it’s smart to question any type of sustainability announcement. However, I have seen many thoughtful sustainability initiatives from IKEA over the last 4 years that look like they are doing the right thing. Fingers crossed that they are.
