Proof is better than rhetoric!
At Tikamoon, we’ve always had a green heart. It’s why we’ve been offering natural solid-wood furniture since 2008.
While today, many claim sustainability – sometimes in a way that’s vague or unproven – we remain faithful to our values, communicating clearly and transparently:
1. We choose to display ‘sustainable wood’ only on FSC©-certified items.
2. We choose to display the ecological range of our products in complete transparency.
3. We choose to measure our performance in terms of carbon footprint and life-cycle assessments.
4. We choose to commit to targets expressed in terms of figures and deadlines.
Below are the elements of TikaGreen : a unique sustainable-development plan, based on tangible evidence and certified by recognised partners.
Our goals include
solid wood products
Furniture built to last, already offered with a
/ 1000euros turnover
FSC© wood products
A method validated by recognised organisations
In order to ensure an authentic figure-based approach, we’ve joined forces with recognised partners. Our approach focuses on four steps: measure, improve, certify, dialogue.
Development of the Carbon Footprint with Carbon 4

(in progress, available October 2020)

(in progress, available November 2020)
We are signatories of the UN Global Compact pact.
We have set goals for progressing in each area based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
We are members of FSC©, which certifies responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit for stakeholders.
We have been FSC© Chain of Custody certified since 2018.
As another means of boosting our TikaGreen plan, we joined WWF’s Entreprendre pour la Planète group.
We financially support WWF projects.
Tikamoon eco-criteria: our performance in complete transparency
We have defined six environmental criteria for measuring the sustainable development performance of our products. This has enabled us to assess the current situation and to set ourselves targets:
|Eco-criteria||Benefits||2020 situation||2023 targets|
|1. Solid wood||Biological material, high recyclability, energy savings||80%||95%|
|2. No composite materials||No MDF, no particle board||94%||100%|
|3. Resource savings||Design minimises waste and maximises reuse of offcuts||80%||100%|
|4. Traditional assembly||Furniture assembled by hand by our cabinetmakers, ensuring product strength and longevity||98%||100%|
|5. High repairability||Longevity due to the ease of renovation of solid wood and the availability of spare parts||80%||95%|
|6. FSC© wood||Responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit||20%||50%|
as a percentage of wood furniture items
The Tikamoon eco-rating: a tool to help you compare and choose your furniture
Based on the following six eco-criteria, we have designed an eco-rating: a grade of between one and four leaves. This rating has been designed to help you choose your products with integrity.
|1. Solid wood||CO2 capture, high recyclability, energy savings|
|2. No composite materials||No MDF, no particle board|
|3. Resource savings||Design minimises waste and maximises reuse of offcuts|
|4. Traditional assembly||Furniture assembled by hand by our cabinetmakers, ensuring product strength and longevity|
|5. High repairability||Longevity due to the ease of renovation of solid wood and the availability of spare parts|
|6. FSC© wood||Responsible and sustainable management of forests: biodiversity and social and economic benefit|
