What we are proud of

  • Our revenue increased by 5.4%, and we delivered EUR 1.5 billion in net income. 85% of this was reinvested in the company to ensure that we make IKEA more affordable, accessible, and sustainable. The other 15% was paid as dividend to Stichting INGKA Foundation to support the charitable activities of the IKEA Foundation.
  • We paid taxes and duties amounting to approximately EUR 1.2 billion (FY22: EUR 1.0 billion).*
  • Ingka Investments invested EUR 1.3 billion in assets such as real estate, renewables, forestry and business development and committed to EUR 1.9 billion.
  • We rolled out our updated Digital Ethics Policy across Ingka, helping us to ensure a responsible approach to the use of AI.

Challenges we are addressing

  • We work to ensure that our suppliers meet high social and environmental standards by implementing and maintaining compliance with IWAY – our supplier code of conduct. Despite progress in implementing IWAY, we identified more non- compliances this year. We are taking action to ensure suppliers address these.
  • Technology creates great opportunities but also presents new risks for our business and our stakeholders. We are rolling out our Digital Ethics Policy and training alongside data protection and security controls, to safeguard our business, co-workers and customers.

Progress against targets

Our vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people. We are setting targets and evaluating our performance for how we can become better in four ways: Better homes, Better lives, Better planet and Better company. Below you will find our targets and performance towards becoming a better company.

Financial resilience

Financial resilience is essential to ensure we can achieve our vision in the long term. We secure this in four ways: keeping costs low so we can offer low prices to customers and maintain a competitive business model; being a responsible taxpayer; maintaining conservative levels of net liquidity that support our independence; and investing to make IKEA more affordable, more sustainable and more accessible to the many people. We achieve all this by reinvesting a large part of net income into the company with the remainder paid as dividends to the Stichting INGKA Foundation to achieve its charitable purpose by funding the IKEA Foundation. No dividends go to any private shareholder.

Responsible sourcing

We work with thousands of suppliers to help run our business – from companies providing construction, security and cleaning services, to home delivery providers and product assembly businesses. We choose to work with suppliers and service providers who share our values, uphold our standards and seek to have a positive impact on people, communities and the planet.

We aim for 100% of contracted suppliers to achieve IWAY compliance each year.*
Data not available

Performance summary

In FY23 we updated our IWAY process and introduced a new standard operating procedure for IWAY to increase our focus on high and critical risk suppliers. Following the update to our process, we are updating our methodology, data collection and IWAY target to better reflect our updated process. This means we cannot report progress against our target this year. We will prioritise the updates to our target and methodology during FY24 to enable us to report progress in future reports.
