Online PR News – 07-June-2011 – – Copenhagen, Denmark, June 07, 2011 -- Greenwood Management, which offers a variety of investment opportunities in the sustainable forestry industry, has revealed a new member of its advisory board.
The firm first launched its advisory board in 2009 in order to ensure it had a range of experts on hand to guide it through the trends and innovation within the forestry industry. Mr Sergio Canella is the newest member of this board. He will join the other members in advising Greenwood Management on regulatory matters, legislative developments and other factors useful in the long-term planning of an investment opportunity.
Mr Canella is from Brazil’s Bahia region, where Greenwood bases its Agropecuaria operations. He has specialist knowledge of the region’s steel industry and its use of charcoal. His task for Greenwood will be to scour various regions for live prices, which he will communicate back to Greenwood through a bi-monthly report.
The reports will also provide forecasting, future wood market analysis and timber price trend information. These reports will obviously be vital to Greenwood Management’s decisions on how and where to establish new plantations and offer investment opportunities that deliver the best ROI for clients. In addition, the reports will also be collated and sent out to Greenwood investors to keep them abreast with the industry in Brazil – this will form part of Greenwood’s investor relations activity.
Carbon charcoal markets have already been identified as a niche, growing area in Brazil as a result of changes in Brazilian law in 2009. Following the Copenhagen Summit, the Brazilian government restricted the use of native timber in the production of charcoal for the steel industry, making them reliant on plantation timber.
Greenwood Management has seen huge demand for investment in its Brazilian plantations thanks to their location and the solid analysis that forms the basis of its decisions. Investors now have the opportunity to place funds directly into Brazilian plantations for as little as €10,000 with Greenwood Management. The company currently has its eye on Costa Rica as another favourable location for forestry investment at the moment.
