How much wood from Thailand did IKEA use?
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 forestsIn FY22, virgin wood of Thai origin used in IKEA products came from actively managed FSC-certified plantation forests in the central, eastern and southern regions.
For several decades we have worked alongside different partners in Thailand to improve forest management. One example is our partnership with WWF. Over the last decade, WWF and IKEA have been working together to transform practices to support sustainable forest management. Today, we are building on previous successes to expand sustainable forest management models nationwide by transferring best practices, know-how and experience to others with a focus on smallholder cooperatives.
