Wood Industry: A Business Against Nature

A film by Marie Maurice
First braodcast January 24th, 2017 on France 2

When 15 – 30% of the timber sold worldwide is thought to be illegal, how sustainable is the wood used in Ikea’s products? The company claims it only uses responsibly-sourced materials but – as this investigation reveals – some of their sub-contractors are pillaging Romania’s ancient forests. In Indonesia, APP plantations have caused widespread pollution. This investigation, filmed in Sweden, France, Romania and Indonesia, investigates the real cost of cheap wood.
