Towards a sustainable future
– 2014 in brief

At IKEA, we want to have a positive impact on people and the planet. For many years we’ve focused on economizing resources and helping to create a better everyday life for people. And now we’ve made a big step forward. We’re going all-in with more sustainable cotton and LED lighting.
From September 2015, all the cotton in our products will come from more sustainable sources. This is good news for you, farmers and the environment. At the same time, we’re switching to 100% LED, making this sustainable light source more affordable and beautiful. These are just two of the ways we can help people all over the world live more sustainably.
We also now have more than 700,000 solar panels installed on IKEA buildings worldwide and we’ve committed to owning and operating 224 wind turbines. But we’re not done yet. We’re just warming up...
