IKEA Austria GmbH

When IKEA started business, design was not something very many people could afford. So the IKEA mission has always been to give people with thin wallets a chance to furnish their homes in a beautiful and functional way. The vision "to create a better everyday life for the many people" drives IKEA - mainly within home furnishing, but also when looking wider at operations: A better life includes co-workers, suppliers and their work environment. It inspires to find more sustainable solutions - from using renewable energy to the way raw materials are sourced and to sustainable help for people in need. When IKEA came to Austria 35 years ago, it was a revolution for the way of living - and also the way of looking at things: simple, equal, diverse.
