PEOPLE & PLANET

Towards a sustainable future

We want to have a positive impact on people and the planet. For many years we’ve focused on economising with resources and helping to create a better everyday life for people One year on from the launch of our sustainability strategy, People & Planet Positive, we’ve made good progress.
Today, more than 2/3 of our cotton came from more sustainable sources. Over 550,000 solar panels are now installed on IKEA buildings worldwide. That’s enough to cover about 130 football pitches and provide annual electricity needs of 20,300 homes. The 12 million LED bulbs we sold last year helped our customers save a total of €86 million off their yearly energy bill, compared to incandescent bulbs.
But we’re not done yet. We’re just warming up….
