Ikea, the furniture company with more than 400 stores worldwide, is planning to make its battery offerings more environmentally friendly.
In September 2020, the firm announced plans to drop its Alkalisk lineup of non-rechargeable batteries.
"By phasing out alkaline batteries and focusing on our range of rechargeable batteries, we are ... offering customers an affordable and convenient solution to prolong the life of products and materials, and reduce waste."
Ikea is not the only company making moves in sustainability this year. Microsoft announced plans in January 2020 to be carbon negative by 2030, and to remove its historical emissions by 2050.
