“To create a better everyday life for the many people”, this is the IKEA vision. Our business idea is “to offer a wide range of well-designed, functional home furnishing products at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them”.
“To create a better everyday life for the many people”, this is the IKEA vision. The main financial principle of the IKEA Group is to grow by using our own resources. In other words, we earn our money before we spend it. This makes it possible for us to make long-term investments for the future.
The IKEA Group of companies (Ingka Holding B.V. and its controlled entities) has an ownership structure that ensures independence and a long-term approach. Stichting Ingka Foundation in the Netherlands is our owner, and its funds can be used in only two ways: it can be reinvested in the IKEA Group or donated for charitable purposes through the Stichting IKEA Foundation.
