Climate Action

We are committed to fighting to protect our planet.
Look at our storytelling series ‘Changemakers for the future’ to see the people behind the climate action work.

Temperatures are rising, causing changes in our climate that threaten every aspect of our lives—from the food we eat to the water we drink to the air we breathe.

At the IKEA Foundation, we are fighting for a planet that can sustain the many people who live on it. The scientific evidence is clear: we only have a small window of time in which to drastically cut carbon emissions. We need to act now.

With our firm belief in collaboration, we can make a big difference and accelerate the incredible work other organisations are doing. That’s why we focus on opportunities where a relatively small amount of money can change large, complex systems that are currently responsible for a lot of greenhouse-gas emissions.

We support programmes that will not only reduce carbon emissions—ensuring future generations will still have a place to call home—but that will also make an immediate and tangible difference in our daily lives.

Along with our partners, we call on governments, businesses, and philanthropic organisations to join us in changing global systems to help reverse damage to our environment and protect the planet for all children.
