However, IKEA defies this logic and this paper will show how IKEA is very concerned with social corporate responsibility to make a profit while still maintaining excellent ethical standards that go above and beyond the legal requirements. IKEA as a corporation seems to believe in the triple-E bottom line. The triple-E bottom is an evaluation of a corporation’s economic, ethical and environmental value that corporation brings to the global marketplace (Sexty, 2008).
