IKEA LINKED TO ILLEGAL LOGGING IN PROTECTED RUSSIAN FORESTS

On 15 July, a report in OCCRP says that a new investigation has claimed that for over a decade, Ikea has reportedly sourced wood for some of its products from companies guilty of illegally logging millions of pine trees from Russia’s boreal forest – a protected region that is considered pivotal towards efforts to combat climate change.  The Swedish furniture giant announced that it ended the practice in June, after the findings in the investigation were shared with the company.
