We are guided by the IKEA vision to create a better everyday life for the many people. That means offering beautiful, functional, good quality, sustainable home furnishings at affordable prices. And it’s about ensuring everything we do has a positive impact for the people involved in our business, and the planet where we live and work. The People & Planet Positive strategy, launched in 2012, was grounded in our belief that to have a positive impact we must go all-in to transform the way we work. We’re proud of what we have achieved, but we know that there is much more to do. And in 2018 we will introduce the next big steps leading us to 2030.
