IKEA criticised over Russia logging practices

Ecologists say Swedish furniture giant is cutting wood from ancient forests in northwestern Russia.

    A new report by the Global Forest Coalition says IKEA has been using wood from an ancient forest in northwestern Russia.

    IKEA says it is an enviromentally responsible company, but there are claims the Swedish furniture giant's logging subsidiary, Swedwood, may be operating double standards.
