Labour conditions in IKEA’s Supply Chain
The IKEA Way on Purchasing Home Furnishing Products (IWAY)’.
In May 2006 OXFAM-Magasins du Monde commissioned SOMO to conduct research on the working conditions in several of IKEA’s suppliers in Bangladesh and Vietnam. The main objective of the study is to describe the working conditions in the factories and to compare them with the standards as prescribed in IKEA’s code of conduct for supplier companies, ‘the IKEA Way on Purchasing Home Furnishing Products (IWAY)’. In the case of Vietnam, an attempt has been made to compare the findings with results of a 2003 SOMO study in which, among other issues, the working conditions in three of IKEA’s suppliers in Vietnam were analysed.
