Responsibility beyond home furnishing

The IKEA vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. This includes doing what we can to help create a world where we take better care of the environment, the earth’s resources, and each other. We know this continuous improvement is a never-ending job, and that we are sometimes part of the problem. But we work hard to be part of the solution.
The Never Ending list

Everything we do makes a difference

A home furnishing product goes through many stages from the time a product is designed to the day it’s no longer wanted by a customer. We call this the life cycle of a product. At IKEA we are making improvements at every stage, and adding them to a list – a never-ending list.
Light bulb

What if we all changed one lightbulb?

If every IKEA customer replaced an ordinary 60-watt bulb with an energy-saving bulb, it would be like taking 750,000 cars off the road in terms of CO2 emissions. Imagine all the good we could do together with more actions like this.

A better start for 100 million children

IKEA Foundation supports programs that improve the lives of children in need through health and education.
Soft toy

Soft toys fund projects

IKEA customers contribute to improved education for millions of children in Africa, Asia and Central and Eastern Europe through the annual soft toys campaign.

Why we work with partners

We can accomplish so much more on social and environmental improvements when we work with experienced partners than when we work alone. That’s why we cooperate with WWF, Save the Children, UNICEF and many others.
