Our forests are mankind’s greatest asset.
The wood we use
The wood used in IKEA products comes from many locations around the world. Here you can learn where it grows and how much we use, as well as the types of wood our suppliers source. You can also find out how we make sure it comes from responsibly managed forests.
Is wood a sustainable material?
Wood is a renewable resource that can be recycled, but that’s not enough for us to consider it a sustainable material. Here you can find out the other conditions that have to be met and how responsible forest management can play a role in mitigating climate change.
Design and innovation
One of the wonderful things about wood is that there are so many ways you can use it. We’re always looking for smarter, more efficient ways to make the most of the wood we use and lead development in the home furnishing industry.
Going beyond our business
As one of the leading wood users in the retail sector, we believe in using our size and global reach to work beyond our supply chain to positively influence, or even transform, the forestry industry.
