Bureau Veritas, Kayrros, a leading environmental intelligence services company, and OPTEL, one of the world’s leading suppliers of traceability systems, announced at COP 28 in Dubai the signing of a strategic partnership to provide companies with a solution to help them combat deforestation. The partnership is designed to help companies comply with the European Union Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), which aims to combat deforestation caused by the import of certain products.
The joint offering is based on the complementary skills of the three companies:
- verification of production conditions and reliability of information by Bureau Veritas, thanks to its international network of auditors;
- tracking of deforestation or forest degradation over time, thanks to satellite data and the reconstitution of biomes (a set of ecosystems) provided by Kayrros;
- transparency on the origin of the commodities concerned, thanks to OPTEL’s traceability system.
