We value our co-workers and customers, whatever their sexual orientation or gender identity. We want to speak up for LGBT+ rights and stand against discrimination. That’s why every 17 May, we celebrate IDAHOT, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia, through events in our stores and offices.

This year, at the suggestion of one of our co-workers, we made our support even more visible with the launch of the rainbow coloured KVANTING shopping bags. These limited-edition versions of the IKEA blue bag were sold in 21 countries with some of the profits going to LGBT+ organisations including the Human Rights campaign foundation.

Where are we going

Going into FY20, we’ll keep investing in lower prices for our customers and in our stores. At the same time, we’ll continue to develop our advantages in home deliveries and take even bigger steps in digital. Above all, we’ll continue our efforts to become people and planet positive, making sustainable choices more attractive and affordable for as many people as possible. As the world keeps changing, our vision to create a better everyday life for the many people is more relevant than ever before.
