Our partnerships


The IKEA Group co-operates with companies, trade unions, NGOs and organisations to develop and reinforce the impact of our work within the social and environmental fields.
 
From a social perspective IKEA Social Initiative has partnerships with UNICEF and Save the Children. From an environmental perspective the IKEA Group has a partnership with WWF (the global conservation organisation).
 
Through these partnerships we focus on improving children´s rights and promote responsible forestry, better cotton cultivation and reduction of CO2 emissions.

Save the Children


As the world's largest independent organisation for children, Save the Children works to secure and protect children's rights to food, shelter, healthcare, education and freedom from violence, abuse and exploitation. Save the Children and the IKEA Social Initiative co-operate internationally and locally, and have a long relationship working to prevent child labour.

UNICEF


The United Nations Children's Fund is the world's leading organisation for children. It focuses on issues affecting children in countries all over the world including child protection, child survival and development, quality basic education, gender equality and HIV/AIDS. The IKEA Social Initiative has supported UNICEF programmes for more than a decade and has a corporate partnership with the organisation, working at an international and local level.

UNDP


UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. Our focus is helping countries build and share solutions to the challenges of democratic governance, poverty reduction, crisis prevention and recovery, environment and energy and HIV/AIDS. In all our activities, we encourage the protection of human rights and the empowerment of women.
