(London Daily Mail) IKEA is likely the world’s largest single consumer of wood.

The Swedish conglomerate needs about 1% of the world’s wood supply to make the furniture sold in its roughly 300 global stores, according to Pacific Standard.

The company needs so much wood, in fact, that Swedwood, a subsidiary company, handles production of all wood-based furniture. Outraged as many may be, critics and their eco-conscience friends might pause before deciding to chain themselves to a forest of Scandinavian trees, the company has a sustainability plan for all this wood.
