The Technological Knowledge Resource about Pines Oriented to the Ibero & Latin American Society


PinusLetter is another of the knowledge-based creations from Celsius Degree, aiming to help the sustainable development of planted forests and corresponding generated products, in accordance to the most sound concepts of technology, ecoefficiency, economy and social-environmental issues. The main characters described in this newsletter are trees and forests from the genus Pinus.

The objectives we have to create, produce, promote and distribute the PinusLetter editions are the following:

• To inform and to communicate in an accessible and transparent way to the Brazilian, Iberian and Latin American Societies about topics that may be of interest to them on plantation forestry and forest products originated from pines and other conifer species;
• To answer to the demands from interested parties on additional knowledge about the pines. Stakeholders can place their suggestions for topics to be covered by PinusLetter through the following e-mail address:
• To collaborate in the qualification of human resources to the forest-based sector, with special focus on developing young talents, who require and demand expertise in forestry, environment, industrial use of products from pine planted forests, technical and business management guidance - always focusing on scientific foundations and on the concepts of ecoefficiency, sustainability and green consumption of natural resources.

In order to grow and to consolidate itself, and also to achieve its sustainability as a high quality newsletter in the quarterly basis we intend to give to it, PinusLetter needs supporters to financially cooperate towards covering its costs, as well as to provide a fair and decent pay to its creators. There are several opportunities for sponsorships: – to organizations and companies that may have their logo and name associated to the publications; – to individual persons who are interested in helping to support this project. If you are interested in financially support the next PinusLetter editions or knowing how to do such, visit the link "Sponsor the PinusLetter".

Besides the support received from several organizations and corporate sponsors, PinusLetter also counts on the help received from facilitating organizations, which are institutions oriented for promoting, cooperating, disseminating, distributing and helping to raise sponsorships – all aiming to guarantee perpetuity for the PinusLetter editions.
