Circular & Climate Positive

Using more renewable materials is part of IKEA's plan to become circular and climate positive.

We’re taking the next big steps

We’ve already achieved a lot when it comes to being people and planet positive, but there is so much more to do! In our journey to become a circular and climate positive business, our aim is to use more renewable and recycled materials, eliminate waste in our operations and change the way we design products and the services we offer customers to prolong the life of products and see products as resources for the future.

By 2030 our ambition is to become climate positive and regenerate resources while growing the IKEA business

Climate & energy

We want to have a positive impact on the environment, which is why by 2020 we’re going to be 100% renewable – producing as much renewable energy as we consume using renewable sources, such as the wind and sun.

Wood

We’re big fans of wood. It’s a living material that lends durability and warmth, ages beautifully and is both renewable and recyclable.

Cotton

Cotton is a natural, renewable material that’s used in some of our best-loved products – from sofas and cushions to bed sheets and bathoom textiles. We're all-in for cotton from more sustainable sources, and are working hard to make cotton farming better for people and the planet.

Water

Water is necessary for life – but clean, fresh water is something of a luxury in some parts of the world. That is why water, both when it comes to quantity and quality, is an important issue for us and our suppliers.

Waste

Making more from less goes back to our roots. But we always strive to do more to rethink what materials we use, and how we can make our products live longer in a cycle of repair, reuse, and recycling.

Food

We serve and sell food to 261 million customers a year through our store restaurants and Swedish Food Markets. Our approach includes using more sustainable and organic ingredients – which includes purchasing ingredients that have been certified to recognised standards and applying animal welfare standards.
