    By using sawmill leftovers and scrap wood in the particle board in this product, we make use of whole trees and not only the trunks. That way, we take better care of resources.

    We want to have a positive impact on the planet. That is why by 2030, we want all materials in our products to be recycled or renewable, and sourced in responsible ways.

It’s not a slid woodyokoIt’s not a slid wood cabinet but it looks very nice. Color is great. One draw back is that I got bad batch of hinges. But still I am very happy for this price.5
Wobbly and unbalancedAnonymousI put together many, many Ikea pieces over the years. This was by far the worst. The assembly itself was fairly straightforward and simple. The problem is with the results. I don't know what is it about the construction of this particular unit, but I was unable to get the assembly tight enough so the four boards of top/bottom/sides do not shift against each other. No matter how much I tightened the screws and the (plastic! seriously!) bits that are supposed to lock against the screws, the four boards are still shifting against each other. Which is highly suboptimal for a piece of furniture. And then there is the door. The door was a nightmare. First, the included hinges are terrible. They are set up so that the door is too far from the unit, so there is a gap between the door and the unit when the door is closed. I tried separating the two sides, pushing the door in all the way and connecting them again - no such luck, the holes don't line up. No, it's actually set up to have a gap like that, for no reason I could fathom. The screws strip if you look at them funny, so by the time I finished finagling the hinges to make the door hang level, the screws were pretty much completely busted - I was using a screwdriver, not a drill, and I am not a particularly strong person. Terrible quality. Second, the door is heavy, while the unit is not, which makes the whole thing pitch forward when you open the door. That problem is solvable if you attach the unit to the wall, but not everyone lives in places where that is an option, so read your rental contract before/if you buy this thing. The feet are adjustable, but even that did not solve the pitching forward problem. Third, there is no closure. No bit of magnet, nothing that will secure the door in the closed position. Given the unbalanced heft of the door, this means you better hang it PERFECTLY, or else the door will be slightly adjar when it's supposed to be closed. This is a problem because of problem #1, and also because the whole unit shifts around. A door can't hang perfectly, no matter what you do, if the unit itself can't maintain its own structural integrity. I would return it, but that would involve renting a car, which means I would lose half the money in the process and half the day in aggravation. So now I'm stuck with it. I will continue buying Ikea stuff because I generally have good experiences with their products, but I will definitely never buy another BESTA anything ever again. It's a WORSTA in my book.1

Our take on wood

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage. At IKEA, we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

Forests are critical for life on earth

Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon. Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.

100% wood from more sustainable sources

At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict. Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions. By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.

IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030

As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come. The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas: • Making responsible forest management the norm across the world. • Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes. • Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.

We accomplish more by working together

For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond. We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.


What is particleboard?

Particleboard is made from recycled wood and sawmill leftovers – so wood pieces with the wrong shade, woodchips and sawdust become a resource instead of possibly being discarded. We use boards for things like bookcases, bed frames, sofas and kitchen frames. To protect from wear and moisture, we apply varnish, veneer or foil that adds to the furniture's look.
