The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. This includes doing what we can to help create a world where we take better care of the environment, the earth’s resources, and each other. We know this continuous improvement is a never-ending job, and that we are sometimes part of the problem. But we work hard to be part of the solution.
Everything we do makes a difference
A home furnishing product goes through many stages from the time a product is designed to the day it’s no longer wanted by a customer. We call this the life cycle of a product. At IKEA we are making improvements at every stage, and adding them to a list – a never-ending list.
If every IKEA customer replaced an ordinary 60-watt bulb with an energy-saving bulb, it would be like taking 750,000 cars off the road in terms of CO2 emissions. Imagine all the good we could do together with more actions like this.
