The IKEA Group is committed to being water positive – using water as efficiently as possible in our operations, and promoting good water stewardship throughout and beyond our business. We are all responsible for making sure that freshwater is properly looked after because it is something that we all share and need.
In February 2018, three new showers - VOXNAN, BROGRUND and VALLAMOSSE - will be launched. They all save up to 30% water and energy. This is achieved by having a flow regulator, which reduces the water flow.
SMAKRIK is a new addition to our organic IKEA food range. The new series of 100% organic rapeseed oils will be launched in February 2018. The Swedish farmers that contribute to SMAKRIK oils follow strict ecological guidelines. No synthetic pesticides or fertilisers are sprayed on the fields – much to the joy of bees and other insects that gladly help with pollination in return. Besides preserving biodiversity, organic farming helps to maintain soil health too.
Working for a positive impact on people and the planet is about supporting a healthier and more sustainable life at home, using energy and resources in a more sustainable way – and taking responsibility for people and communities.
