GIIN Report: Sustainable Forestry Pays

The latest sustainable forestry report released by the GIIN shows sustainability yields a premium.




At the end of April, the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN) launched its ‘Scaling Impact Investments in Forestry’ report here: https://thegiin.org/research/publication/forestry


From its press release:


"Over the past two decades, interest in sustainable and impact forestry investing has grown steadily in the wake of rising environmental concerns.

The GIIN’s new report takes a close look at both asset owners and managers and provides recommendations on how to unlock more capital flow into the sector. The research follows on from a previous report into real assets impact investing, which showed that sustainable timber typically outperforms conventional timber.

High performance, coupled with resilience to a recession, historical interest from institutional investors, and a compelling impact story, marks forestry as an advanced and important sector for impact investing."
