LVM is working hard to reduce its CO2 emissions. One such activity is planning and managing the transportation of timber. Since 2013, LVM has managed to reduce the number of kilometres travelled in one ride by 49 kilometres.
“This time, the mushroom was found in a birch stand incorporating individual spruces and aspens; however, usually it can be spotted in spruce stands of different ages on moist soils - in mosses and spruce needles. This is the fourth biggest known deposit of this species in LVM Northern Latgale region. In other sites that were previously identified there were only individual specimens, up to eight specimens, therefore we are very happy about this large and important discovery,” tells Diāna Marga, LVM Environmental Planning Expert.
JSC Latvia's State Forests” (LVM) would like to draw your attention to the amendments to Cabinet Regulation “Occupational Safety Requirements for Occupational Exposure to Carcinogenic Substances in Workplaces”, which have been supplemented taking into account the requirements of European legislation on the protection of workers against the risks related to carcinogenic or mutagenic effects.
The changes are intended to establish or correct workplace exposure limits (limit values) for a number of carcinogens, including respirable crystalline silica dust found in mineral deposits and construction sites, or sand-containing materials.
Actions to support a fluent science-policy dialogue on forests will be an important focus of the collaboration, which was officially launched in 2013.
