Interview with IKEA on Sustainability

I knew about IKEA's cutting of costs with flat packing, but it's cool to hear them talk about dealing with several different issues of sustainability.

ideas:
- save on resources, save on environment
- looking to use more renewable energy, even producing solar and wind energy themselves. Goal of 60% renewable by 2009
- thinking of biofuel transport
- trying to get more local suppliers

Really? I missed this the first time around. That's cool - I wonder if they made it to 60%. Time for a follow-up!
