IWAY – our supplier code of conduct

IWAY is the IKEA way of responsibly procuring products, services, materials and components. It is mandatory and sets the base for social, environmental and working conditions for all suppliers and service providers that work with IKEA.

Contents and compliance

IWAY has a set of requirements, the “IWAY Must”, which all suppliers and service providers need to comply with before we start working together. These requirements are described in the IWAY Standard.

In addition there are two complementary sections for specific parts of the IKEA supply chain, the IWAY Forestry Section and the IWAY Transport Section, relevant for suppliers or service providers in respective industries.

After we have started working together, we expect the new supplier or service provider to comply with the full IWAY Standard within 365 days.
