A sustainable everyday

We want to empower people to live more sustainably, so we’re focusing on affordable, resource and energy efficient products. With home solar panels, veggie hot dogs, and energy-saving solutions, we’re paving the way for more sustainable homes for the many.

How to live more sustainably at home

 

We understand that more and more people are interested in reducing the impact they have on the planet, but that many don’t really know how to do it.

To make this easier we focus on a few key things: energy, air, water and waste.

 

How to enjoy a healthier home

Lack of sleep, poor air quality and not enough exercise are health challenges that many people face today. Happily, there are simple solutions that can encourage better wellbeing at home.

    How to save energy and water at home

    Energy and water are major expenses for every household, as well as a huge strain on natural resources. Fortunately, there are many convenient ways to easily cut those costs.

      Choosing more sustainable materials

      We are continuing our journey towards only sourcing renewable or recycled materials by 2030. We aim to use only renewable or recycled materials and to provide new solutions for our customers to prolong the life of products and materials.

        A clear sustainability strategy

        We’ve set ambitious goals. This includes commiting to becoming climate positive by 2030. This means reducing more greenhouse gas emissions than the full IKEA value chain emits, while growing the IKEA business.
