IKEA have also worked with the an external company to create a green travel plan for co-workers and later on, guests. The plan encourages co-workers to use many different sustainable travel methods with the ambition of reducing single car occupancy by 5% year on year. IKEA have created a number of incentives for co-workers to travel in this way such as interest free loans for new bicycles or public transport season tickets.
