Why more sustainable plastic matters
When choosing materials for products, our sustainability strategy People and Planet Positive is the guideline, regardless if we talk about cotton, wood, wool or even plastic. Our ambition is that all plastic used in the IKEA home furnishing range will be recyclable and based on renewable or recycled material by 2030, and the journey towards this goal has already started.

Read about our unique vision and business idea, and the fascinating story about how IKEA was founded more than 75 years ago and grew from being a tiny company in the Swedish countryside into what it is today – a global brand with almost 1 billion store visits last year.

The IKEA Concept
At the heart of the IKEA concept is our vision - to create a better everyday life for the many people.
At IKEA, we believe that design is for everyone. We strive to create products that are beautiful, functional, sustainable, high quality and affordable. Like the LISABO coffee table in ash veneer, winner of the international Red Dot award for design.
Democratic Design
We feel good design combines form, function, quality, sustainability at a low price. We call it “Democratic Design” - we believe good home furnishing is for everyone.
We believe in choosing materials responsibly, and we aim for renewable, recycled or recyclable resources whenever possible.
