People and Planet


”We've come a long way, but we're still just warming up.”

What is sustainability about?


To us it’s about taking care of people and the planet – from tackling the problem of children living in poverty to creating renewable energy. Our co-workers, suppliers and partners have been working on these issues and more for a while. You can see evidence of this work through innovative IKEA products and solutions, and through the way we do business. If we all take small actions, we can all contribute to big results.
