The IKEA sustainability strategy – making a real difference

The planet is our only home. And our home needs us now more than ever. Inequality risks making it unaffordable. Intolerance risks making it unwelcome. And climate change, uninhabitable. But home has always been what we make of it. And we’re determined to help a billion people live better everyday lives.
