SOLUTIONS

Forest landscape restoration could generate $7–$30 in economic benefits for every dollar invested. Yet, many investors are capturing less than 1 percent of the value.

We mobilize intelligent conservation capital, enabling investors to optimize the value of their portfolio, while reducing climate risks, through three main solutions.

CLIMATE RISK MITIGATION TAXONOMY

The Climate Risk Mitigation Taxonomy (CRMT) enables institutional investors to select from 15 types of climate risks such as flooding, wildfires, and drought, and from 18 types of co-benefits such as supply chain efficiencies, reducing disaster relief costs, and increasing property values.

 

Selected risks and co-benefits are mapped to 10 types of forest and landscape restoration (FLR) solutions that can either reduce those risks e.g. wetlands can mitigate wildfires; or generate co-benefits e.g. every hectare of mangroves generates ~$1,000 in ecotourism revenues.

FOREST FUNDS

MAP & DIRECTORY

The Forest Funds Directory is not an investable platform and does not replace investor due diligence. It is a complimentary, searchable database of pre-screened, sizeable, and responsible investment opportunities in forest and landscape restoration (FLR). These opportunities can fulfill ESG investment mandates, or, when strategically selected, they can mitigate investor climate risk exposures and generate a variety of co-benefits.

Using the Forest Funds Map ‘search nearby’ feature, investors can enter the address of their assets at risk, and find suitable investables that mitigate those risks, within a 20-mile radius.

IMPACT ANALYTICS

DASHBOARD

Imagine being able to quantify the value that each FLR investment has in terms of mitigating your portfolio climate risks, such as reducing the costs of damages, credit risks, and supply chain disruptions.

 

Our AI-powered analytics dashboard quantifies the benefits of making an investment—beyond IRR—helping investors capture value from climate risk mitigation, and from other co-benefits, such as increasing property values of assets, decreasing utility costs, and revenue generation.

WHY INVEST IN FOREST LANDSCAPE RESTORATION

  • Sustainable and responsible forestry meets ESG investment criteria and has a strong track record of performance. 

  • Renewable asset, with a low risk to return ratio.

  • Traditional risks can be avoided through professional forest management.

  • Asset maturation (i.e. tree growth) follows biological, cycles, regardless of the economy.

  • Potential to generate multiple income streams such as timber, non-timber forest products, carbon credits, and recreational activities. 

  • Uncorrelated to stock markets and to more commonly held assets; helps with portfolio diversification.

  • Growing demand for wood in construction suggests that timber prices will continue to rise.

  • Forests sequester carbon during their lifecycle, and post-harvest in the soil, stumps, and wood products. 

USE CASES

& Examples

  • Natural disasters led to $103bn in economic losses globally in 2019. An insurance company with flood risk exposure can co-benefit by averting damages at a 1:15 cost benefit ratio through strategically investing in green infrastructure, such as mangroves.

  • For public investors, every hectare of mangrove creates around $1,000 in recreation and tourism annually, $5,800 of value in water and air purification, $3,600 in coastal protection, and hundreds of dollars each year from carbon sequestration, fishing, and forestry.

  • The UK National Health Service estimates that green spaces could save them £2.1 billion in health care costs.

  • California’s 9 million trees boosted property values by $839 million.
