RELEVANT SUSTAINABLE GOALS
IKEA PACKAGING INNOVATION PROGRAMME
When it comes to packaging, IKEA is looking for innovative solutions for the future for these two key aspects:
- What are the new sustainable materials of the future that will protect products and make sure they reach customers safely?
- What are the innovative solutions for safely transporting goods from suppliers to customers that we haven’t seen before?
Dedicated to providing the most affordable, comfortable and well-designed products globally, IKEA is one of the world’s largest home furnishing brands today. As a curious company with a constant drive to enable people to live a better everyday life within the limits of the planet, they are also invested in making packaging alternatives more sustainable and safer – to both people and our planet. This is why they are looking for innovative packaging disruptors in the following areas:
- Sustainable alternatives and innovative packaging materials of the future, including upcycled or waste materials from other industries.
- Accessible solutions for safely transporting goods from suppliers to customers.
IKEA is now scouting for potential start-ups to join a Packaging Innovation Accelerator Programme to tackle these challenges. Through this program, IKEA aims to collaborate with start-ups to find sustainable and innovative solutions and accelerate innovative and sustainable packaging solutions.
