The IKEA Sustainability Strategy

We have big ambitions for 2030. We are committed to doing our part to tackle climate change, unsustainable consumption, and inequality. Our three major focus areas are Healthy & sustainable living, Circular & climate positive and Fair & equal.

Healthy & sustainable living

Inspiring and enabling more than 1 billion people to live a better everyday life within the boundaries of the planet.

Circular & climate positive

Becoming circular and climate positive, and regenerating resources while growing the IKEA business.


35% more efficient

The new SOLHETTA LED bulbs are much more energy effecient - and affordable - than previous IKEA LED bulbs.

100% renewable electricity in IKEA factories

During FY21 we reached 100% renewable electricity for all IKEA-operated factories, packaging and distribution units globally.

55.8% renewable materials

Of the materials we sourced in 2021, 55.8% were renewable and 17.3% were recycled.


Less waste with rechargeable batteries

We no longer sell non-rechargeable alkaline batteries and have replaced them with our LADDA rechargeable batteries. This helps customers to significantly reduce waste and save money in the long run.
