    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.

UnhappyJanineIt was really hard to assemble this desk, and the order was over a week late with delivery. In addition, two other items were missing from my order, which I was charge a delivery fee. I would have never paid a delivery free for one item to be delivered. They sent me an arm rest, charged me for it, with no chair. Not a good place to buy any products from.1

I love my new vanityElisabetI love my new vanity desk , I have more drawers and space5
Just what I neededLISAThe Alex box was heavy but it went to gether really easily and the top and legs were a pice of cake. I have not attached them yet, I'm playing with where I want it an so its easier to move without them attached yet!5
writing deskannaI love it, it made my room looks much fancier.5
Nice little deskKarenThis is a great desk for the price but parts of it were pretty difficult to put together.4
Perfect size deskKarenWe were looking for a desk for the bedroom turned office. This was perfect. Although the legs we wanted were out of stock, these are still fine. The Alex drawers are well made and slide flawlessly. A bit time consuming to put together, but the construction was not hard - even for a 60 yr old woman. Very happy with yet another IKEA purchase.5
Easy set up and perfect desk!MELANIEThis desk is so convenient to have, easy set up and fits perfect!5
Outstanding DeskMelanieI’ve purchased 2 of these and I couldn’t be happier. Very easy to put together. If you are looking for an inexpensive solution this is your desk.5
Nice Desk - Easy to assembleStephenAssembly took a couple of hours, but went smoothly, overall. (The only issue I had was of my own doing - I dropped a couple of the mid-sized nuts into the wrong holes and it took a few minutes to dig them back out).5
Drawer covering not gluedLYNNThe back of the two smallest drawers plastic covering was not glued down and was rippled. I needed the desk so we just replied but couldn’t remove the rippled.3

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 constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light and resource-efficient, yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fiberboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.
