PARTNERSHIPS

Our main partners


We believe that we can achieve so much
more by working with others than we
could ever do on our own. Together with
partners like Save the Children, UNICEF
and WWF we can contribute to meaningful,
substantial and lasting improvements
for people and the planet.

Save the children logo

Save the Children
We first started working with Save the Children in the
mid-nineties. The partnership aims to deliver immediate
and lasting improvements to children’s lives.
Unicef logo

UNICEF
We’ve been working with UNICEF for a decade on programmes that give children a better start in life – not least through access to education and healthcare.
WWF logo

WWF
It’s been ten years since we first started working with WWF on projects focusing on responsible forest management. Today, we also cooperate to improve the way cotton is cultivated and to help tackle climate change.

Local partnerships
We want to be a good neighbour, so stores and other IKEA units engage in local social and environmental issues, and lend a helping hand in times of need.
Check out your local IKEA store to see what’s going
on in your area.
 

THE IKEA FOUNDATION

The IKEA Foundation


The IKEA Foundation wants to improve opportunities for
children and youth in developing countries. Programmes
have a holistic approach to address children’s fundamental
needs. The aim is to create substantial and lasting
change, enabling them to eventually take charge of their
own future by turning the cycle of poverty into a cycle
of prosperity. Partners include the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and the UN development programme (UNDP).
