Contribution in minimizing all internal damages or other costs related to IKEA products.

Take necessary action on products to give them a second chance, such as repackaging and assembly.

Always consider the sustainability impact when deciding when and how to recover products.

Contribute to an environment where IKEA culture is a strong and living reality that embraces the diversity of co-workers and customers.
