In 2022, IKEA remained steadfast in our commitment to sustainability and upholding the value of "People & Planet Positive." We are constantly exploring different fields and making positive changes from within the company. For instance, we have launched BLÅVINGAD toys made from recycled ocean waste, introduced circular rental services, and implemented electric trucks for transportation. Our stores lead by example, mobilize employees to support local communities through Blue Bag Fund. We are thrilled to collaborate with other business organizations to promote second-hand activities, and also with non-governmental organizations and customers for charitable activities to alleviate energy poverty in Hong Kong, you can learn more our community projectsbelow. We invite you to join us, no matter where you are,to amplify your impact in your daily life and make our planet a better place!

Healthy & Sustainable Living
Making Healthy and Sustainable Lifestyles More Affordable
Our ambition for 2030: To inspire and enable more than one billion people to live a better everyday life within the planet’s boundaries.
To raise awareness of green living, we organized a series of ocean conservation initiatives and held the “Under Havet” exhibition at four of our stores in Hong Kong to discourage the use of plastics and encourage the act of recycling and reusing materials. We also educated children about the impact of their daily habits on the ocean through comics and soft toys made of recycled ocean pollutants.

Circular & Climate Positive
Transforming Into a Circular Business
Our goal is to become a circular business by 2030. Thus, we are committed to designing our products based on circular product design principles and using renewable or recycled materials. By developing a circular business model, setting up a comprehensive recycling system, and tapping into the secondhand goods market, we prolong the value and lifespan of our products together with our corporate partners.
Four of our stores in Hong Kong partnered with Carousell to give secondhand furniture a second life, and consumers could purchase their ideal furniture at affordable prices. Through this initiative, we have successfully created a circular economy and developed a blueprint for Hong Kong’s secondhand furniture and household products industry. Moreover, we have reduced waste significantly and eased Hong Kong’s waste problem.

Becoming Climate Positive

Fair & Equal
Caring for People
We plan to uphold human rights in our entire supply chain and strive to build a more close-knit society by 2030. An Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is offered to all employees, who are IKEA’s most valuable assets. Upon joining the company, an employee will receive a Hong Kong EAP card that allows access to professional counseling services for stress relief.
Climate change makes it much more difficult for needy families to break out of the cycle of poverty. Together with our employees, we seek to understand the needs of our communities and support their development. IKEA Hong Kong collaborated with A Plastic Ocean Foundation to launch the IKEA Light Up Hope campaign. We helped villagers with limited resources by installing energy-efficient lamps for them. In addition, our Macau team utilized the Blue Bag Fund to assist Fountain of Hope, a local charity organization, in revamping its multipurpose room. We took action to help the needy and exercised our influence to bring about positive change in society. Let us work together to build a fair and equal society for everyone.
