IKEA

We are a values-driven company with a passion for life at home. Every product we create is our idea for making home a better place. At the IKEA Group, we have 340 stores in 28 countries as of August 31, 2016.   Välkommen! That's Welcome in Swedish.
At IKEA, we want to have a positive impact on people and the planet. That’s why we’re going all-in on things that really matter, from switching our entire lighting range to energy-efficient LED to sourcing all of the cotton we use in our products from more sustainable sources.

We’re also working towards 100% renewable energy - producing as much as we consume in our operations - and sourcing all of our wood from more sustainable sources by 2020. And the IKEA Group and IKEA Foundation have made new commitments that add up to $1 billion for climate action. But we’re not done yet. We’re just getting started…   2016 Sustainability Report
