The financial year 2021 was a year of both challenges and important movements towards the IKEA 2030 commitments. Significant sustainability achievements include improvements throughout the value chain to further reduce the IKEA climate footprint in absolute terms compared to baseline FY16, as well as the launch of a public online circular product design tool, and taking a big step forward to only use renewable energy across the entire value chain. The IKEA Sustainability Report FY21 gives an overview of the progress regarding our ambitions outlined in the People & Planet Positive strategy.

Forming the first-ever duo of IKEA design managers

Johan Ejdemo, Design Manager at IKEA of Sweden.

Already as a design student, Johan Ejdemo was more inspired by the potential of the collective than the competitive. Now, he’s stepping in to form part of the first-ever duo of IKEA design managers. We talked to Johan about the perks of leading together, designing for circularity, and the stories design can – and should – tell.

Making an icon more sustainable

In an attempt to make the iconic POÄNG chair more sustainable, IKEA has launched a pilot to use wood wool in the cushion instead of foam. Foam is often not biodegradable, and as a part of the commitment to only use renewable and recycled materials by 2030, wood wool can be a small step in the right direction. We spoke to Piotr Jakubiak about replacing a traditional seat.
