IKEA and WWF Conservation Partnership

IKEA and WWF work together to increase the availability of FSC-certified wood and to tackle problems such as illegal logging. We cooperate in projects in important wood sourcing regions such as Russia and China, Bulgaria, Romania, and Vietnam.

The co-operation, started in 2002, has contributed to doubling the certified forest areas in China and helped Russia become the world’s second largest country by certified forest areas.

Forestry projects

The forest projects aim to combat illegal logging, support responsible forest management and certification, and develop and promote innovative management tools. Examples of projects 2005-2008:
  • Promoting responsible wood trade and development of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification in China.
  • Identifying high-conservation-value forests and supporting FSC certification in Romania and Bulgaria.
  • Supporting legal cross-border wood trade between Russia and China.
  • Promoting legal compliance in the forestry sector and responsible forestry practices in Russia.
  • Certifying an acacia plantation to FSC standards in Vietnam.
  • Developing sustainable production and sourcing of rattan in Laos and Cambodia.
