• To reduce their CO2 emissions, IKEA makes furniture from wood harvested from rainforest nations.
  • As of 2017, the company has sourced over half of its wood from sustainable places. The ultimate aim is to use 100%.
  • The company is also phasing out the use of potentially harmful chemicals when making urniture.


    • Hi Jean-Claude,
      Really good question. Greenwashing is so pervasive right now that it’s smart to question any type of sustainability announcement. However, I have seen many thoughtful sustainability initiatives from IKEA over the last 4 years that look like they are doing the right thing. Fingers crossed that they are.
