Transforming Business for People and Planet


WWF and IKEA are working together to safeguard and manage natural resources and transform business for the benefit of people and planet. Through engagement and projects within forests, cotton, freshwater and climate, the partnership is working to protect and enhance biodiversity by supporting a transition towards more ecologically sustainable business practices.

Since 2002, WWF and IKEA have worked together to protect and improve management of forests and fight illegal logging, as well as reduce water and pesticide use and improve livelihoods in cotton farming. The partnership is also working with freshwater projects in finding shared solutions within water use for a more sustainable textile industry as well as accelerating climate action for businesses. Together we are collaborating with other companies and networks to shape progressive regulations and stimulate sector-wide innovation.

The combined expertise of our two organizations gives us the ability to influence entire markets and inspire sustainable business practices, delivering conservation and resource stewardship that would not otherwise be possible.

STORIES FROM THE FIELD: Indigenous Women from the Oaxacan Copalita Watershed in Mexico are Driving Social Entrepreneurship and Nature Conservation

The Copalita-Zimatán-Huatulco watershed in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico is home to one third of the country’s biodiversity and equally rich in culture. Zapotec indigenous communities have lived in the upper and middle parts of the watershed for centuries, since pre-Hispanic times.
As in many rural areas, women in the Copalita watershed play a key role in managing natural resources, providing for their families, collecting wood and water, harvesting vegetables, and preparing meals. However, their contribution is often under-appreciated. And at a national level, women tend to face more severe challenges than men.
