IKEA has launched an international carpool trial

IKEA has launched an international carpool programme in collaboration with Liftango to accelerate its sustainability goals. The company aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the total value chain by 50% by 2030.

The carpool trial (one of the largest of its kind) will begin this month across three continents including Europe, North America and South East Asia, encouraging employees to adapt to new mobility solutions through a customized app.

The app, dubbed Ride2Work, has been developed by global carpooling technology provider Liftango, which aims to reduce the number of cars on the road by collaborating with companies pursuing zero-emission goals.

According to IKEA, the ride-sharing app is an answer to providing safe and sustainable commuting alternatives. At the same time, many employees are still hesitant about using public transport in the aftermath of the pandemic.
