Better lives for the many people and communities

OUR VISION TO CREATE A BETTER EVERYDAY LIFE FOR THE MANY PEOPLE GOES BEYOND HOME FURNISHINGS.

We believe that everyone de¬serves the right to prosper, re¬gardless of their background and situation. Across our business, from our 155,000 co-workers to the millions of people who work in our extended supply chain, we can make a difference to people’s lives around the world.

What is IWAY?

The IKEA Way on purchasing products, materials and services is our supplier code of conduct. It sets out our minimum require¬ments for suppliers, covering environment, social and working conditions, and is a pre-condition for doing business with us.

IWAY helps us to develop long-term relationships with our suppliers so that we can grow together with shared values and understanding. Our IWAY develop¬ers work with suppliers to support them in implementing IWAY and, more importantly, to bring posi¬tive impacts to the many people involved in the IKEA supply chain. Our 87 IWAY auditors carry out around 2,000 audits per year.
