3. Policy standpoint
Trust, integrity and honesty are key values of the IKEA Group. Corruption is contradictory to
the objective of doing good business. It damages the confidence our co-workers, suppliers,
customers and other stakeholders have in IKEA. Furthermore, corruption undermines the
rule of law, distorts markets, and denies the many people their rightful share of resources.
The IKEA Group has zero tolerance towards corruption in any form.
No one, co-worker or business partner, acting on behalf of the IKEA Group or with
whom the IKEA Group has a relation (including suppliers, vendors and contractors)
may directly or indirectly request, offer, pay, accept or receive bribes or conduct other
corrupt practices.
The IKEA Group does not allow any form of facilitation payments.
The IKEA Group co-workers do not ask for gifts or hospitality and are strongly advised
not to accept and/or provide gifts or hospitality from or to any business partner or third
party. If and when the IKEA Group accepts or provides gifts this is done in a
transparent and approved way.
Non compliance with this policy by co-workers shall result in internal disciplinary action and
may lead to termination of employment contract and possibly to legal prosecution.
Any act by an IKEA business partner contravening the content or intent of this policy
may prompt the termination of the business relation.
