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.
Creating a better life for the people and our communitiy
IKEA Leeds in the community
This year we donated a number of products to
Norristhorpe J&I School in Liversedge. To support Norristhorpe’s aim to teach pupils about the importance of sustainability, during delivery explained the sustainability benefits of their products to the children.
At IKEA Leeds, we are dedicated to giving back to the local community while being regarded by our customers and co-workers as a socially responsible company.
