C40 Cities has launched a three-year partnership with Ingka Group, the strategic partner in the IKEA franchise system, operating IKEA Retail in 30 countries.
The partnership will deliver ambitious projects in support of C40’s mission to ensure the world’s leading cities can achieve the most ambitious goals of the Paris Agreement at the local level.
The projects included in the partnership are:
- IKEA Retail (Ingka Group) will support C40 to continue the work of its Clean Construction Forum, which helps cities in the transition to resource-efficient, zero-emission construction.
- Support for the C40 Reinventing Cities Competition: a global architecture and design competition encouraging entrants to consider how to transform under-utilised sites with decarbonised and resilient regeneration with the ultimate goal of developing healthier and greener cities.
- Roll out of two zero-emissions urban goods transport projects in cities that have signed up to C40’s Green and Healthy Streets Declaration.
The partnership with IKEA Retail (Ingka Group) will support C40’s commitment to transforming how we think about infrastructure, construction and transportation in order to build healthier, greener and more liveable cities.
