IKEA READING

As a Home Furnishing Retailer we believe that home is the most important place in the world. Our vision is to create the better everyday life for the many people. Our business idea is to offer a wide range of home furnishings with good design and function at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford them. Most of the time, well-designed home furnishings are usually created for the few who can afford them. From the beginning, IKEA has taken a different path. We have decided to side with the many. That means responding to the home furnishing needs of people around the world. Becoming people and planet positive is an integrated part of our business; We help people live a more sustainable life at home with products that save water and energy, preserve food and minimise waste. This also applies beyond the home through the impact of our business and the role we have in society. Sponsoring the Sustainable category in the Reading Retail Awards felt natural, and the right thing to do! We are excited to be a part of the awards again.
