"We are curious and committed to exploring, innovating and developing together with all our partners across whole value chain and with you as customers."

"We need to rethink the way we design, produce and how we can reuse plastic material for products in IKEA."

Working with waste

Finding new ways to work with recycled materials is key and using waste as a resource takes us one step closer to a more sustainable future.

PET is the most recycled plastic and can be used for many different purposes.

Together, we can do more

Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable based plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
