Recent developments/actions

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.
