IKEA Croydon | Environment


IKEA is embracing a better way to produce cotton. Working together with partners such as the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) and WWF® has enabled more than 100,000 cotton farmers to significantly reduce water, chemical pesticide and fertiliser use, while increasing their earnings. By 2015 we want all the cotton we use to be produced this way. Through the IKEA Foundation we also work closely with Save the Children and UNICEF to give at least 16 million children in cotton growing communities better opportunities in life.
Thank you for your visit Harris Academy
On the 1st May IKEA Croydon was visited by students from local school, Harris Academy in South Norwood.

The objective of their visit was for each student to get ideas and inspiration to design their own self-assembly lamp for their final GCSE coursework project. The group wanted also to gain understanding of the market IKEA is selling to, the packaging and transportation implications of products arriving and leaving the store and the range and quality of different lighting products we sell.
In essence students wanted to get a ‘real world’ experience, as their own product should look as professional as possible. Based on the knowledge gained from the school visit they will also have to design self-assembly instructions, using no text. The visit in Croydon store was organized by Marketing, Sales and Commin functions to make it as interesting for visitors as possible.

The students have learned about IKEA Croydon local customers, had a store tour focusing on different lighting solutions and had a chance to build a few lamps themselves. We hope their visit to the store will help them in their project!
