We want to have a positive impact on people, society and the planet. For us, it is about balancing economic growth and positive social impact with environmental protection and regeneration. Responsible sourcing of raw materials and production plays a large part in this.
Social, ethical and environmental responsibility
We’re committed to taking responsibility throughout our entire value chain. Together with our partners, we work to create long term positive change, focusing on root-causes. We want to make responsible sourcing the norm across our businesses and beyond.
Our Responsible Sourcing of Raw Materials Framework
This framework helps ensure that IKEA agricultural raw materials are produced in a way that results in healthy soils. This includes practices that improve soil organic carbon, prevent soil erosion and nutrient run-off, employ low or no tillage, and that include beneficial grazing practices.
Sustainable animal agriculture
Improving animal welfare and enabling a shift towards more sustainable animal agriculture is a part of our sustainability ambitions and central to the IKEA Food business direction. We will do this through the IKEA Food Better Programmes.
An ocean full of flavour
SJÖRAPPORT series offers a wide range of seafood products. All farming, fishing and harvesting of our seafood takes great care not to disturb the sensitive marine ecosystems.
Committed to only serving certified seafood
All wild-caught fish and shrimp served and sold at IKEA come from fisheries which are independently certified to Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) standards, supporting sustainable fishing and protecting seafood supplies for generations to come.
All IKEA salmon comes from farms that are certified to the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) global standard for responsibly farmed seafood.
More food that’s delicious, healthy and sustainable
We believe that making healthier and more sustainable food the easy, affordable, and delicious choice is a vital part of creating a better everyday life for the many people.
