Ikea dishes out free green energy to customers

Ikea UK is partnering with Big Clean Switch to offer £35 worth of free green energy to customers.

British homes can access the free energy on top of any other savings by switching to a green energy supplier through the Ikea website.

The ready-to-assemble retailer said that its ambition is to become a fully circular and climate positive business by 2030.

The move follows the announcement earlier this year that Ingka Group, the holding company behind the Ikea brand, is investing €4 billion in renewable energy to reduce its climate footprint across the entire value chain

“Millions of homes across the UK are already benefiting from IKEA products and services that help to reduce waste, energy and water, as well as to save money, which is why we’re so pleased to be able to partner with Big Clean Switch and help our customers switch to green energy suppliers too,” said Greg Lucas, sustainability manager, Ikea UK. “With everything we do we hope to enable and inspire people to take small, affordable and simple steps towards living more sustainably.”

Jon Fletcher, chief executive of Big Clean Switch, said: “Too many UK households are put off switching supplier because they think it will be too much trouble or they don’t trust the energy market and as a result, they’re often paying hundreds of pounds more than they should be. We’re working with IKEA to provide a different kind of switching service that provides their customers with the support and reassurance they need to make the switch to greener, more affordable energy.”
