IKEA supports EU legislation on Mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence
On 24 January 2021, Inter IKEA Group, together with 11 companies from the Nordic Business Network for Human Rights, signed a joint statement supporting EU legislation on mandatory human rights due diligence regulation.
In the statement, all signatories share considerations for the design of such legislation based on their collective experience conducting human rights due diligence across the many sectors and geographies in which they operate.
At IKEA, we believe that supporting the joint statement is very much aligned with our commitments and ambitions to be a part of creating a more fair and equal society. We believe that progressive legislation can not only support business integration of respect of human rights but also enable sustainable business growth and development in society.
We know that respecting human rights and ultimately creating a positive impact in society will not be done by us alone. We welcome the opportunity to work closely with other stakeholders towards these goals, contributing to a better everyday life where all people’s rights are respected.
