IKEA Sustainability Report 2010 now available
[International]  The IKEA Sustainability Report 2010 highlights some of IKEA Group's progress during FY10 (September 1, 2009 to August 31, 2010) in the areas of social and environmental responsibility.
"I'm proud to share with you some of the things that IKEA has accomplished so far together with our customers, co-workers, suppliers and partners such as WWF, UNICEF and Save the Children. Working together means that we can make huge contributions towards a more sustainable future" says IKEA Group President and CEO Mikael Ohlsson.

The report describes the priorities for 2015 as outlined in the new IKEA Sustainability Direction, influencing the entire value chain from product design and development to the very end of a product's life.

Highlights from the 2010 IKEA Sustainability Report:
  • The introduction of the IKEA Sustainability Product Score card, a new internal tool for product development and purchasing, which will help us select the best alternatives to boost products' sustainability profile.
  • More than 80,000 farmers in India and Pakistan are now using better farming practices as a result of IKEA supported projects, and the share of more sustainable cotton in the IKEA range more than doubled in FY10.
  • The share of certified solid wood increased substantially, from 16.2 to 23.6 percent.
  • The number of IKEA buildings with solar panel systems nearly doubled, taking us one step further towards the goal of operating all IKEA units on 100 percent renewable energy.
  • The IKEA Foundation decided to invest an additional 7.5 million euro in a water and sanitation program in India as part of its commitment to UNICEF and Save the Children programmes that will benefit 100 million children.

100 million.

Estimated number of children the IKEA social projects in partnership with UNICEF, UNDP and Save the Children will have benefited by the end of 2015.
