Statement Of Support

We are committed to … sourcing and producing renewable and recycled materials with a positive environmental impact.

These goals or statements have overlap among more than one category

Responsible Fiber Sourcing

Suggest an Edit

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

Suggest an Edit

Removing all single-use plastic products from the IKEA range globally and from customer and co-worker restaurants in stores* by 2020.

We have taken steps to begin to phase out virgin fossil plastic from the IKEA product range.


Renewable / Alternative Energy

Suggest an Edit

By August 2020, the IKEA Group will produce as much renewable energy as we consume in our operations.


Energy Consumption

Suggest an Edit

Become 20% more energy efficient in our own operations by August 2015 and 30% by August 2020. Encourage and enable our direct suppliers to become 20% more energy efficient by August 2017.

Water Consumption

Suggest an Edit

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.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Suggest an Edit

By 2030 our ambition is to become climate positive and regenerate resources while growing the IKEA® business

Manufacturing / Operational Waste

Suggest an Edit

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

Suggest an Edit

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.
