Een betere IKEA catalogus

Sep 09, 2020, Hoe we de wereldwijde printindustrie veranderden

Voor Inter-IKEA hebben we de duurzaamheidsprestaties van de IKEA catalogus verbeterd door de hele toeleveringsketen te optimaliseren met één kleine maar slimme big data-tool. De tool bevat data dashboards voor inkopers, leveranciers en retailers, die de hele levenscyclus van de catalogus beïnvloeden.

De tools voor de toeleveringsketen resulteren in enorme duurzaamheidswinst op het gebied van onder ander energie, afval, en water, direct vanaf het eerste jaar, en ieder jaar daarna een beetje meer. Vanwege het printvolume van de catalogus heeft dit project een positieve invloed op de wereldwijde printindustrie. De jaarlijkse verbeteringen spreiden nu zelfs uit naar gerelateerde industrieën.

Lees de onderstaande projectcase over het proces, de strategie, de innovaties en verdere verbeterprocessen van het project.

The IKEA catalogue with more than 200 million copies is the largest annual print run in the world. IKEA Media Production has worked diligently to improve the catalogue’s sustainability performance.
