”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 and promoting renewable energy. Our co-workers, suppliers, and partners have been continuously working on these issues and more for a while. You can see evidence of this work through our innovative IKEA products and solutions, along with the way we do business. If we all take small actions, we can all contribute to big results.
