Our vision is “to create a better everyday life for the many people.” On this site you can discover exactly what this means and find out who we are, what we do and what we stand for.
How are we doing on sustainability?
We are on an exciting journey to inspire and enable more people to live healthier and more sustainable lives, while at the same time, creating a positive impact for people, society and the planet. This year we mark an important break in the trend, as the climate footprint of the IKEA value chain decreased while maintaining business growth. Learn more about our sustainability challenges and achievements in the IKEA Sustainability Report FY19.
Today, four out of ten IKEA store visitors live in water-scarce regions. And the world’s rapidly growing population is putting even more pressure on this precious resource. Saving water should therefore be part of everyone’s everyday, regardless of their access to it. To make this easier, we design products to help reduce daily water consumption in the home.
Our ambition is that by 2030 we will be a leader in creating a fair and equal society. By basing all of our strategic decisions on our humanistic values and everyone’s equal worth, we want to create meaningful change and an inclusive environment for our co-workers, our business partners and the communities around us.
Equality works better
IKEA recognises the value and contribution of all women around the world. And while grateful for the progress that has been made, we cannot ignore the fact that much work has yet to be done to reach true equality. We believe in a fair and equal society that benefits all, and will continue to work towards an environment where co-workers feel valued for their uniqueness, are recognised for their diverse talents, and where people of all genders can truly be themselves.
Behind every IKEA product you’ll find down-to-earth, straight-forward people working for and with the many people. Together, we will create a better everyday life for ourselves and our customers.
