Better company

We do business with a humanitarian outlook, guided by our vision and values but always adapting to a changing world. We structure our business to ensure financial resilience and we reinvest profit to help us keep growing and improving.  

We push to be a fair, inclusive and empowering company with good governance, equal opportunities and respect for human rights across our entire value chain. 

Led by our purpose

For the past 78 years, we have been driven by the IKEA vision to create a better everyday life for the many people. That is our purpose. We achieve our purpose through our strategic direction, our leadership and our values. 

Financial independence and our unique ownership structure

Our financial approach is based on 78 years of earning money before we spend it, which allows us to be financially independent and purpose-driven in our decisions. We think in generations, not quarters, and invest in the long-term good of our customers, our business, people, society and our planet.
