People & planet
While IKEA work’s on a global level to improve the lives of people in places like India and Pakistan, IKEA Rhodes also strives to be a good neighbour in our local community.
Here's how we're making a difference in our local community.
SUSTAINABLE LIFE AT HOME
Classified as an oily fish, lax is considered to be healthy due to its high protein and Omega 3 fatty acid content, which are important for brain function. Lax also has lots of vitamin D for healthy bones and muscles.
IKEA has committed to source salmon only from ASC certified (Aquaculture stewardship council) farms by August 2015 at the latest.

Now that Bear Cottage is twelve years old, like any home, years of wear and tear have taken their toll on the rooms and furniture which have become a little tired. This November a team of co-workers from IKEA Rhodes, IKEA Tempe, IKEA Service office and IKEA Contact Centre came together to makeover the two family suites at Bear Cottage.
The newly made over suites were unvield on Friday 15th November and were wonderfully received by the staff and families at Bear Cottage.
Take a look at these before and after photos to see the transformation. we hope you like it!
IKEA Rhodes has been working in partnership with TAFE SWSi since 2010, giving local design students the opportunity to gain industry experience through a work placement program. By offering local designers the chance now to gain financial support towards their studies IKEA Rhodes is excited to further support the local community and the development of young talent when it comes to home furnishings and life at home.
Designers are being given the opportunity to compete for the grant by entering a competition whereby they produce a plan to redesign a corner of their home using the IKEA range.
The top five entries will be on display at IKEA Rhodes from Monday 30 December for you to vote on your favourite.
Another achievement that I am so proud of is our contribution to UNICEF through workplace giving (iCare). In February this year, IKEA became UNICEF Australia’s biggest supporter through workplace giving. This is particularly impressive considering we’ve been running the program for less than 2 years.
IKEA Rhodes currently has 27% of co-workers donating, the second best contributor in Australia.
