2:44 min
  • Ikea's push to be a global seller of solar panels comes as reports link their production with forced labor allegations from Xinjiang, China, where much of the raw material used is produced.
  • The province also faces scrutiny for human-rights abuses against Uighurs, an indigenous ethnic group.
  • A company official said if Ikea can't ensure human rights in the supply chain, it'll have to change suppliers.
