Think what 170 million
of us could do

IKEA stores attract about 170 million customers worldwide, or about 83 million households. So we got to thinking: Even a small percentage of our customers could have an impact on the environment if they tried to live a more sustainable life at home. What if all 170 million of us made small changes in the way we live? Together, we really could make a difference to the planet.

The Never Ending list

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.
