IKEA Stores Owner Ingka Accelerates Investments to Cut Emissions | Investing News

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Ingka Group, the owner of most IKEA stores, plans 600 million euros ($712 million) in sustainability-related investments over the next 12 months as the world’s biggest furniture brand aims to be climate positive throughout its value chain by 2030.

The plan is to spend a third on renewable energy, a third on stakes in innovative start-ups, and a third on making its stores and warehouses more sustainable, Chief Financial Officer Juvencio Maeztu told Reuters.

Renewable energy in China and Russia is on the cards, as are companies that could be of help in increasing the reuse, resale and recycling of IKEA products. IKEA buildings that do not yet have renewable energy-powered heating and cooling would be retrofitted to that end, he added.

Immigrant entrepreneurs create more jobs than their American counterparts

The Donald Trump administration has been cracking down on the coveted H-1B work visa by portraying that immigrants steal American jobs. New research, however, debunks that perception.

Immigrants in the US act more as “job creators” than as “job takers.”

Immigrants are 80% more likely to be entrepreneurs than natives in the US, according to a July 2020 study. “This is not just small businesses like restaurants and laundromats, but also high-growth ventures like Tesla and Google that go on to create thousands of jobs,” Daniel Kim, study author and assistant professor of management at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, told Quartz.

The study, authored by Kim and Pierre Azoulay (professor at MIT), Benjamin Jones (professor at Northwestern Kellogg), and Javier Miranda (economist at US Census), was published in the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER).

Keenan Allen is Chargers’ money receiver, and that pays off for all

He had just signed a four-year contract extension worth up to $80.1 million.

So, how did Keenan Allen celebrate this week?

“I had a little splurge,” Allen said Thursday. “Not really a splurge, but a Taco Tuesday mixed with a little margarita, you know.”

A toast certainly was earned, the new deal giving Allen the second-highest annual average salary among wide receivers.

In locking down the team’s top pass-catcher, general manager Tom Telesco capped a financially active preseason. On the eve of practice opening, the Chargers signed defensive end Joey Bosa to a five-year, $135-million extension.

“It means everything,” Allen said of staying with the Chargers. “They were the guys that drafted me, that gave me a chance, gave me my first opportunity. Being able to stay here with the organization I started with, all the relationships I have in the building, it’s major.”

The Chargers selected Allen in the
