Becoming a circular business
At IKEA we’re working to become a circular business and are finding new ways to make circularity more convenient and relevant for you. One way is by developing new products and services to enable you to maintain, repair and pass on your belongings when you no longer need them.
A circular business by 2030
We are working to transform every aspect of what we do, from the way we source energy and materials to how we design our products, how and when we meet our customers, and how we run our operations.
We’ve set ambitious goals:
- To enable our customers to acquire, care for, and pass on products in circular ways
- To design every product from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured and finally recycled
- To source and produce renewable and recyclable materials
- To advocate, collaborate and form business partnerships to promote a circular economy
More than 60% of IKEA products globally are based on renewable materials and more than 10% contain recycled materials.
On our way
As part of our journey to becoming a circular business we’re designing for a circular future.
Globally In 2019, we also gave 39 million recovered products a second life, 32 million products were resold through the As-is shop, and more than 8 million products were repacked and sold at affordable prices.
