IKEA has announced an ambitious sustainable energy strategy, “People and Planet Positive,” for energy independence. The company aims to produce as much energy as it consumes by 2020 through a $2 billion investment in solar and wind projects. The furniture retailer plans to gather 70 percent of its energy demands from renewable sources by 2015, leveraging wind farms in six European countries that generated 152 gigawatt hours of electricity last year, about 12 percent of the total needed for its stores and distribution centers.

PG&E has joined with Habitat for Humanity to help revive neighborhoods in San Francisco, the East Bay, and Bakersfield. The program provides funding and expertise towards weatherization, energy efficiency retrofits, and employee volunteer support of neighborhood improvement projects.
