Sustainability shouldn't be a luxury

We want to enable and inspire you to live a more healthy and sustainable life within the limits of the planet and believe that action speaks louder than words. To spark real change, we believe a positive, proactive and collaborative approach can turn climate challenges into scalable solutions. No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. And together we will solve this.

The IKEA sustainability strategy

Our sustainability ambitions and commitments are set for 2030 in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To reach them, we are now accelerating into a decade of action. Together with co-workers, customers, and partners the world over, we are tackling climate change, unsustainable consumption, and inequality. Here we have summarized some of our goals that we want to achieve by 2030:

  • IKEA will become climate positive. This means reducing more greenhouse gas emissions than the IKEA value chain emits.
  • We strive for 100% renewable energy (electricity, heating, cooling and fuels) across the IKEA value chain.
  • We will make our products exclusively from renewable and recycled materials.
  • We will offer more and more services to help care for and pass on products, such as the Second Life Service.
  • By 2025, we will ensure emission-free home delivery.
  • We make Photovoltaic Systems and Heat pumps accessible to the many Swiss people because we believe that Clean Energy is the future of our planet.
  • By 2022, we will achieve full gender equality. That means equal opportunities, equal pay and a 50/50 gender balance.
