IKEA launches new forest agenda
“Wood is one of the main materials in IKEA products and an essential part of our heritage. It´s durable, renewable, recyclable and beautiful. As a large user of wood, for many years we have consciously worked to use our scale and global reach as a driver for positive change in the forestry sector, particular in regions facing challenges. Wood is also a key material for the future, for reaching our ambitions to become circular and climate positive.” says Ulf Johansson, Wood Supply & Forestry Manager.
200 million EURO investment
Last year Inter IKEA Group announced a 200 million EURO investment to speed up the transformation to become climate positive. A considerable part of that investment is aimed at removing carbon from the atmosphere through reforestation of degraded forests and better forest management practices.
