Brazil - BVRio and FSC® establish partnership for promoting certified timber.
BVRio and FSC Brasil signed a cooperation agreement to promote timber products certified by FSC - Forest Stewardship Council® within the Responsible Timber Exchange, launched last year. Furthermore, the partnership reinforces the dissemination of BVRio’s commitment to low impact forest management and the promotion of the legal/responsible timber market in Brazil and worldwide.

With the agreement, BVRio enters the Key Account Program, which aims to build and maintain strong and productive relationships with partners who are committed to the FSC®, share expertise and resources and develop innovative approaches to forest conservation.

The partnership will help to create balance between supply and demand for certified products, foster new production chains, open markets, engage small and community producers, encourage new certifications, promote both brands and the Responsible Timber Exchange platform as an important sales channel for certified timber products.

"We are delighted to be able to develop this agenda with FSC Brasil. This partnership provides us the recognition that we are aligned with the same goals", said Mauricio Costa Moura, director of BVRio's Responsible Timber Exchange.

For FSC Brasil’s Executive Director, Aline Tristão, "this agreement is very important and adds to other initiatives that we have been pursuing in order to fight against deforestation and illegality in the timber industry, fostering the widespread use of certified wood, in addition to enabling the adoption of best practices and creating more business opportunities, expanding people's awareness about the importance of consuming forest products that originate from a good management plan". Particularly for community forest managers, BVRio and FSC Brasil will work together to facilitate access to the market by providing assistance in the areas of management, planning, analysis and operation. There will also be initiatives to promote responsible timber products among national and international buyers, as well as assistance in the development of value adding strategies and commercialization of goods.
