Our Responsibility

Our responsibility

Our businesses are guided by our values and our roots in Småland, which drive us to make the best possible use of the limited resources available.

We have a long-term perspective on our business. For us, profitability and responsibility are not opposing forces. On the contrary, we see that they depend on each other. We can only ensure long-term profitability by acting in a way that creates trust among all stakeholders; and we can only ensure our ability to take on long-term responsibilities by being profitable.

We strive to create shared value between ourselves and our primary stakeholders – franchisees, co-workers, customers and suppliers – and in relation to society.

We’ve come a long way. But we do realise that our journey has just started and that most things still remain to be done. We cannot solve everything at once, but we are committed to be part of the solution.

Inter IKEA Group code of conduct

The Inter IKEA Group way of doing business is based on the values and culture described in IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad’s The testament of a furniture dealer.

The Inter IKEA Group code of conduct is a supplement to those values. It is built around principles for behaviour, both within the group and towards business partners and other stakeholders. Our standpoint is always to do good business with common sense, based on honesty, respect, fairness and integrity.

The code of conduct applies to all co-workers within all Inter IKEA Group companies.
