IKEA Kaarst - a leadingsustainable storeONE HOME, ONE PLANET took place on3-4 April 2019 at the IKEA Kaarst store.IKEA Kaarst, Germany, is a leadingsustainable store and opened in 2017.It serves as a concept base for developingnew stores with even higher standards.Some examples of why IKEA Kaarst iscalled a leading sustainable store include: Using solar thermal energy, keepingenergy consumption as low aspossible. Rainwater harvesting on the roofwith a capacity of 240 cubic metres,or around 1,200 filled bathtubs, forour sanitary facilities. LED lamps installed throughout thestore. Innovative waste management toensure sorting rates of almost100 percent. Certified by BREEAM (BuildingResearch EstablishmentEnvironmental AssessmentMethodology); this is one of theoldest and most widespreadcertifications for sustainableconstruction. We are workingtowards an Excellent award.A more sustainable eventIn our efforts to make ONE HOME, ONE PLANET amore sustainable event, we took several actions toset a good example.FOODThe menu for our two days together was all vegetarian. Wewere introduced to an “Urban Farming” salad lunch, a plantbased dinner buffet and a vegetarian lunch with dishes fromthe IKEA range.The food served throughout the eventcame from both local food suppliers andfrom the IKEA range.Only tap water in reusable IKEA bottleswas provided to the participants.The water bottle was given to theparticipant to take home after event.REDUCING RESOURCESWe carefully considered interiordesign and products we used. Almostonly IKEA products were usedthroughout the event, and then soldin the Kaarst store in the AS-IS areaafter the event, prolonging the lifeof the furniture after the event.The main communication tool before and during theevent was the IKEA Meeting App. Using a digital toolmeant we could minimise printing of event materialslike agendas and other participant communication.USING MORE SUSTAINABLE MATERIALSAll visual communications materials created for theevent like signs, posters, etc were made from renewablematerials such Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)certified paper, plywood and cardboard. The visualmaterials can easily be re-used for other events.6The name tags included mixed flower seeds that participantscould plant in their homes after the event.In line with the overall IKEA commitment to remove singleuse plastic from the global home furnishing rangeby 2020 the event used no single use plastic.TRAVELMany of the participants and organisers chosesustainable travel options like train to travel toKaarst, including most of the project team comingfrom Sweden.To accelerate the change in flights industry, we alsocompensated the CO2 emissions of participants’flights (average calculation) to and from the nearestairport Dusseldorf by investing in biofuel through theAir France-KLM Biofuel Programme.
