ABOUT THIS REPORT This report describes the sustainability work carried out on a global level by the IKEA Group during financial year 2009, from 01 September 2008 to 31 August 2009 (FY09). HOW TO READ THIS REPORT The structure of this report reflects the environmental and social responsibility approach to our stakeholders, and how we work to address the environmental impacts of our operations. Each chapter provides a description of developments during FY09 and our systematic work in many areas. We use key performance indicators (KPIs) to show results against our targets. Most of these targets were set for FY09, and the work to develop new targets will be completed during FY10. In the final chapter we have gathered the metrics presented throughout this report. This report is our communication on progress (CoP) as a signatory to the UN Global Compact, and a cross reference list shows how we implement the ten principles of the UN Global Compact in our operations.
