LONDON—Open Road has been appointed by Helveta, which provides technology that provides full traceability and online verification that helps ensure the legality of timber felled in tropical hardwood exporting countries across the world,  as its public affairs and stakeholder relations consultancy across the European Union, the U.S., the U.K. and in other world markets.

 

Helveta and partner agencies monitor forest management activities in nations across the Congo and Amazon basins and in South East Asia and its  CI World software tracks timber products back to the original standing tree to help stop illegal logging and the importation of forest products derived from illegally harvested timber.

 

Open Road is advising Helveta on its response to the EU’s recently announced draft framework regulation on illegal logging; its response to the EU’s new communication on forestry that would create financial incentives for tropical hardwood exporting countries to preserve their forests; engaging policymakers in the U.S. on the implementation on the recently amended Lacey Act which has made  it an offence to import illegally felled timber; raising Helveta’s profile in Brussels with the EU institutions; and assisting Helveta in its dealings with UK embassies in Peru, Brazil and elsewhere to make best use of U.K. government support.
