The Goals Database
Bio-based / Renewable Materials
We are committed to … sourcing and producing renewable and recycled materials with a positive environmental impact.
Responsible Fiber Sourcing
Before August 2020, become forest positive. Continue to maintain full compliance with our forestry requirements. Promote the adoption of sustainable forestry methods beyond our needs and across the industry and contribute to ending deforestation.
By August 2020, we aim to source 100% of our wood, paper, and cardboard from more sustainable sources
By August 2020, contributing to FSC certification of 15 million hectares of forest in priority areas – which is equivalent to more than double the total area needed to supply IKEA.
Eliminate Unfavorable Materials
By August 2020, become water positive by promoting water stewardship throughout our value chain. Contributing, with others, to improved water management in water stressed areas where we operate, focusing on both water use and water quality and helping people to have access to clean water.
Manufacturing / Operational Waste
By August 2020, reduce waste from our store operations by 10%. By August 2020, 90% of the waste from our own operation will be recycled or energy recovered, of which 80% of the waste from stores and distribution centres and 90% from IKEA Industry Group will be material recycled.
Improving Recovery Infrastructure
Target key raw materials with dedicated “resource chain” projects to establish new flows of recycled materials. By August 2020, close at least two material loops (material loops not currently existing in a region) for post-consumer waste.
