13. Climate action
By signing the COP21 engagement letter, we commit to take voluntary action to reduce environmental and carbon footprints. We implement this by setting targets to reduce our current own GHG emissions and/or energy consumption, while also collaborating in supply chains and at sectorial levels. We agree on the need for inspirational and meaningful global action and aligned messaging. We will act as ambassadors for climate action, focusing on solutions and economic opportunities. We will help raise public awareness. We will actively manage climate risks and incorporate them in decision making — not least to realize growth opportunities. We will take steps to implement effective strategies to strengthen not only our companies’ but also societal resilience.
8. Decent work and economic growth
IKEA Belgium made gifts and financed languages courses and job coaching sessions to support refugees’ integration. This year we want to consider the possibilities to contract them in our shops for a limited period with the aim to provide them with resilient work experience. We contribute to a better life for the people and communities across our value chain, from supporting decent work throughout our supply chain, to being a great place to work for our own co-workers. We improve environmental and social standards in our supply chain through IWAY, our supplier Code of Conduct, including respect for human rights and promoting safety and health at work.
