Woodbois partners with World Forest ID

Woodbois Limited (AIM: WBI), the African focused forestry, timber trading, reforestation and voluntary carbon credit company, is pleased to announce a new partnership with World Forest ID, which will enhance the traceability and identification of timber, originating from the company's forest concessions in Gabon.

World Forest ID is an international organisation which is revolutionizing the protection of forests through the application of science-based origin tracing and species identification. World Forest ID is building an extensive global library of reference samples, from various forest regions, for use in cross verification.

Woodbois Limited is supporting World Forest ID's mission in Gabon by coordinating the collection of samples from within its concession areas. World Forest ID's science-based analyses provide irrefutable verification of species identification and origin, meaning Woodbois Limited will be able to provide proof that wood originates from its concessions, as well as confirmation of botanical species.

CEO, Paul Dolan, said:

This partnership with World Forest ID represents a critical building block in the Woodbois suite of services for the sustainable management of Africa's forests.

We will continue to dedicate time and resources to the research and engagement of best in class partners to enable us to scale our sustainable forestry operations and carbon projects in Africa.
