IKEA has been selected as a Finalist in The Accenture Strategy Award for Circular Economy Multinational for the work with circularity in the everyday work. The Circulars, an initiative of the World Economic Forum and the Forum of Young Global Leaders, is the world’s premier circular economy award program.

The IKEA history and company culture is to be cost conscious in everything we do. We dare to think differently and do not want to waste resources. Being circular is both a responsibility and a good business opportunity.

Today, the direction is to be a circular company in all aspects: from how we develop products, source materials, develop our supply chain, and set up logistics, to how and where we meet our customers.

“We truly believe that the journey toward a circular economy requires a daring and innovative mind-set, working together with many stakeholders. It is not only to take back things. This nomination shows that we are on our way towards a true transformation into a circular business.”, says Malin Nordin,  Development Leader Circular IKEA at IKEA Range & Supply.

The winner of the award will be presented at The Circulars event will be held at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos on 22nd January 2018.
