SATA (South American Timber Association) is an organization that represents the interests of the South American timber industry. SATA's main objective is to promote sustainable forest management practices and the responsible use of South American timber products in global markets.
The organization works to provide information and support to its members in areas such as trade policy, environmental regulations, and market trends. SATA also aims to promote the use of certified timber products from South America, such as those that meet the requirements of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
In addition to SATA, there is also an organization called NORMA (Northern Brazilian Amazon Sawmills Association) which represents the interests of the sawn timber industry in the Northern region of Brazil. NORMA works to promote sustainable forestry practices and responsible management of timber resources in the region.
Both SATA and NORMA play an important role in promoting sustainable forestry practices and responsible management of timber resources in South America. By working together, these organizations can help to ensure that the South American timber industry remains a valuable and sustainable source of timber products for global markets.
