Brazil - EU - Sweden - Report points BVRio Timber Exchange as one of initiatives to combat deforestation
BVRio’s Responsible Timber Exchange was one of the participants of the report about the meeting on transparency in the commodity supply chains, organized by the EU REDD Facility, European Forest Institute, Stockholm Environmental Institute and the Global Canopy Project.

The report points out that there is a need to unite governments and companies to promote "radical transparency" in the commodities market. Therefore, during the event at COP22 in Marrakech, the Transparency for Sustainable Economies (Trase) platform was presented, an open platform with data on the origin of products such as meat, palm oil and soy. The module on timber supply chains is been developed in collaboration with BVRio's Responsible Timber Exchange.

In addition, the document brings an article signed by the CEO of BVRio, Pedro Moura Costa about legality in the timber market. Along with representatives of companies, non-governmental organizations and governments, Pedro contributed to the discussion about transparency, the Brazilian situation and how the Responsible Timber Exchange can help to reduce illegality in the timber sector.
