WHAT’S HAPPENING AT IKEA

    
THE 2015 IKEA GROUP SUSTAINABILITY REPORT IS HERE
 
When it comes to sustainability, this year we’re going all-in. Now all of the cotton we use for our products comes from more sustainable sources, our entire lighting range is LED and we are on track to producing as much energy from renewable sources as all of the energy we consume. And these are just some of the things we’ve achieved. We’re also working hard to help combat climate change, conserve natural resources and tackle inequality. Check out our 2015 Sustainability Report to find out about the progress we’re making towards achiev­ing our sustainability goals.

WE'VE GONE ALL-IN WITH LED
 
Our entire lighting range is now LED. With its energy savings, exciting new designs and improved light quality, LED lighting is so much better than traditional incandescent lighting. And not just better for your home, it’s also better for the environment too.

IKEA GROUP JOINS WORKPLACE PRIDE
 
As of October 1st, 2015 the IKEA Group is officially a member of Workplace Pride, a non-profit foundation that strives for greater acceptance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people in the workplace.
 
In keeping with the IKEA values, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment. “We want all our co-workers to be able to be themselves at work. We want them and our customers to know that we respect and support the LGBT community,” says Sari Brody, Global Diversity and Inclusion Manager. 
 
Through this membership we will connect with other global companies and exchange organizational best practices for LGBT issues.

The IKEA concept

We constantly ask: Is there a better way? That’s how the IKEA home furnishings offer remains unique and how we try to make everyday life better for the many people.

Democratic design

For us, good design is the right combination of form, function, quality, sustainability and a low price. We call it “democratic design”, because we believe good home furnishing is for everyone.
