Forest tracing

IKEA suppliers regularly report the origin, volume and species of all wood used in IKEA products. This information and a risk assessment are used to select a number of wood supply chains for closer evaluation. IKEA forestry specialists audit the suppliers' and sub-suppliers´ wood supply from the factory all the way back to the forest of origin. Rainforest Alliance Smart Wood Program, a third-party auditor, complements the IKEA auditing system by conducting a limited number of wood supply chain audits.
