Gender equality milestone at IKEA

For years, the IKEA Group has been continuously developing a supportive infrastructure for diversity and inclusion. It starts with daily inclusive behaviours, and includes building competence around gender equality and exploring our unconscious bias. It also covers HR practices and policies such as flexible work arrangements, recruitment, succession, benefits, competence development and mentoring. As of September 2016, approximately half of IKEA Group’s managers around the world are women (48%).

Cotton from more sustainable sources

As of Sept 1st 2015, all cotton used in IKEA products comes from more sustainable sources. This means it’s grown with less water, chemical fertiliser and pesticide, while increasing profit margins for farmers. For over a decade, IKEA has been taking steps to transform the way cotton is produced, working with partners like the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) with WWF.

Let’s play for change

Play is a right of every child under the UN conventions on the Rights of the Child. The new IKEA Good Cause campaign, Let’s Play for Change, focuses on children’s right to play and develop. For every children’s book and toy sold during the campaign period (Nov 20th to Dec 24th), the IKEA wFoundation will donate € 1 to projects supporting children’s development, learning, equal participation, sports and play.
