IKEA pauses operations in Russia and Belarus

The devastating war in Ukraine is a human tragedy, and our deepest empathy and concerns are with the millions of people impacted. The immediate actions of Inter IKEA Group and Ingka Group have been to support the personal safety and security of IKEA co-workers and their families, and we will continue to do so. The war has had a huge human impact already. It is also resulting in serious disruptions to supply chain and trading conditions. For all of these reasons, the company groups have decided to temporarily pause IKEA operations in Russia.

Creating impact beyond beautiful homes

IKEA has been collaborating with social enterprises since 2012 with a single mission – to create a better everyday life through long-term job opportunities and livelihood for people who need it the most. Now Saitex, and three other social enterprises, are creating the new IKEA collection VÅRDANDE, which will be available globally from July.

Co-creation – to develop better products for life at home

At IKEA, we try to understand as much as possible about everyday life. Through co-creation, we invite you to tell us about your struggles and wishes at home, or to share your feedback on some of our ideas. We take what we learn and design new products, make the ones that already exist even better or create stories that inspire you. Curious?
