Company description

Are you ready to make a difference?

Better cotton
All cotton used in IKEA products is now made of more sustainable cotton, grown using less water, chemicals and pesticides
– while increasing profit margins for the farmers.

Single-use plastic, no thanks!
We want to make a diffe- rence. That’s why IKEA has decided to remove all single-use plastic products from our range by January 1, 2020.

100% certified wood 
IKEA takes another bold step, deciding that all
wood used by the company should be FCS certified
by 2020.

It takes both brains and heart to work with us
At IKEA you don’t have to choose between hard-core business and a conscience. We are guided by our vision to create a better everyday life for the many people in everything that we do. That’s a responsibility that goes beyond the home through the impact of our business and the role we have in society. We want to sit in the driving seat towards a more sustainable society – both in terms of the environmental and social betterments.

The initiatives shown above are just three examples in which IKEA Supply play an important role. Our job is to facilitate for IKEA to do good business while being a good business. In our daily work we need to follow both our brains and hearts to get the job done. We have a strong belief that we can achieve this by working closely with our suppliers, both regarding a more sustainable use of materials and to continuously improve the conditions for workers.

Right now we are looking for a pro-active Communication Business Partner for our Category Area Textiles, placed in Älmhult, Sweden.
