The governor of Rio Grande do Norte Ms Fatima Bezerra and Timbeter CEO Anna-Greta Tsahkna signed a cooperation agreement today in the framework of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh with the participation of Estonian Environment Minister Madis Kallas. Main aim of the agreement is to implement Timbeter technology to stop illegal logging and enhance transparent forest management in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte.
According to Timbeter’s founder and CEO, Ms Anna-Greta Tsahkna, the whole world keeps currently eyes on Brazil, especially on what is happening in the Amazon forests, and that it is clear that Brazil is back at the center of global climate change policymaking.
“For Timbeter, this is a new, important breakthrough on the way to becoming a global standard for precision forestry. For us, the signing of this cooperation agreement at COP27 has a significant meaning, clearly demonstrating that Rio Grande do Norte is ready to boldly implement changes in the forest sector. Timbeter’s technology has been very well received by the private sector in Brazil, and we are very happy to expand cooperation with the public sector, because only in the cooperation of the public and private sectors can big changes be implemented,” said Ms Tsahkna.
Agreement was proudly witnessed by Minister of the Environment of Estonia, Mr Madis Kallas who confirmed that “Cooperation in the implementation and distribution of green technology solutions around the world is important for the Estonian government. I am hopeful that today’s cooperation agreement between Timbeter and Rio Grande do Norte State of Brazil will be a clear sign of a long-term friendship between two countries”
The Governor of Rio Grande do Norde, Ms Fatima Bezerra, said: “I am very happy about the innovative cooperation started today. Following the example of Timbeter’s collaboration in the state of Pernambuco, established in 2021, we aim to expand the use of Timbeter solution to all Brazilian states, especially to the Amazonian states, as these states implement forward-looking cooperation technological solutions to reduce illegal deforestation. “
Timbeter makes it possible to speed up the measurement process and streamline environmental monitoring activities in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. The goal is to support the digitalization of the forest sector, increase transparency and enhance supervision.
Timbeter’s digital tax application enables quick and easy reporting on wood purchase-sale transactions, which helps to increase transparency and make the control of the timber supply chain more effective. In addition, Timbeter is developing fully automated forest inventory functionality, which ensures digital data-based carbon accounting.
