How much wood from Belarus did IKEA use?
We have stopped global wood purchasing from Belarus following Inter IKEA Group's decision to scale down business in the market and the Forest Stewardship Council’s termination of accreditation scope.
We require that suppliers use Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified or recycled wood in our home furnishing products. All information presented here is valid for Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) with a reporting period from 1 September 2021 to 31 August 2022 and, unless otherwise specified, applies to virgin wood used in IKEA home furnishing products (excluding paper).
Regions and types of forests
In FY22, virgin wood of Belarusian origin used in IKEA products mainly came from actively managed boreal forests in the central and southern regions.
