Timbeter opened its first LATAM office in Pernambuco, Brazil. Company has been working with some of the largest companies in Latin-America since 2017 such as CMPC (Chile), Suzano (Brazil), Klingele (Brazil), Faber-Castell (Brazil) and many others.
Last year, during the Climate COP26 in Glasgow , the Governor of the State of Pernambuco, Paulo Câmara, Anna-Greta Tsahkna, CEO of Timbeter and José Bertotti, Secretary of Environment of the State of Pernambuco, signed an agreement to start a cooperation project focusing on strengthening legal and sustainable practices for the forest industry in Brazil. The main goal of the cooperation project between Timbeter and the Government of the State of Pernambuco was to use Timbeter’s innovative technology for measuring timber as an efficient supervising tool for the environmental inspection teams.
“For us it was a logical step to expand our activities in the Latin-American market and be near to our customers. We see a lot of potential for growth as we have a very good experience working with Brazilian and Chilean companies that are open to adopt new innovative technologies in their operations. Thanks to Timbeter they are benefiting from higher efficiency, transparency and accurate digital data. Our goal is to contribute to sustainable forest management as much as possible. The need for green digital transformation in the public sector is also an important step for the Brazilian government towards innovation and development plans to reach the climate goals. Timbeter’s goal is the cooperation with different agencies in order to use the digital transformation for implementing sustainable forestry practice – efficient use of natural resources, better overview, monitoring and control against illegal logging activities.
Furthermore, we see a lot of interest from the Brazilian side towards the e-Estonian experience in regards to digital transformation so hopefully we can help to intermediate cooperation, knowledge-sharing and capacity building between the two countries.
Timbeter is also partnering with academic institutions in Brazil like Universidade de São Paulo, UFRRJ, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina to contribute to the education of the future foresters. New office in Brazil enables closer cooperation with clients and partners in the region.
Timbeter provides accurate AI measurement and data management solution for transforming forestry. Timbeter’s digital solution is changing the forestry sector by enabling sustainable forest management, increasing the safety of employees, maximizing the value of each log, helping to optimize logistics and guaranteeing fair trades. Also, it helps with monitoring and controlling the timber supply chain, supporting governments and law enforcement agencies to prevent illegal logging and keep a better overview on the volumes harvested.
