Ikea Management to Get Hybrid Company Cars

Ikea has announced that all management staff in Spain who have company cars will be switched over to Toyota Prius' as soon as the current leasing period expires. The number of cars changing isn't huge, but is another small step for the increasingly green furniture company.

The move is the latest of many small but positive changes from the company, such as initially charging for, and then banning, plastic bags in the US and the UK, handing out free CFL bulbs to customers and giving staff free bicycles. All these are part of a larger plan which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport by 9 percent before 2010. We've previously written about other moves that the company are making, and highlighted just how big an impact a small change in working practices can be for a huge company like Ikea. ::Auto Blog Green ::Picture source
