How can investors benefit from the timber boom?
Modern timber investments focus on the climate impact of the industry and on the long-term storage of CO2 in timber buildings.
Until now, timber investments were understood to mean direct investments in timber plantations because the performance of the timber industry was modest. Since the timber turnaround in 2020, opportunities with significantly higher added value and returns have opened up in the timber industry. Modern timber investments focus on the climate impact of the industry and the long-term storage of CO2 in timber buildings.
The Timber Finance Tracker Certificate is a structured financial product that enables investors for the first time to invest in the CO2 storage of long-lived products from the forestry and timber industry.
Timber Finance offers investors CO2-relevant investment opportunities and provide growth financing for the forest and timber industry. We will invest CHF 100 million in the forestry and timber industry by 2030.
We are developing instruments (e.g. a CO2 fund based on timber construction) so that private and public real-estate developers can achieve their net-zero targets in their own real estate portfolio with the help of timber construction storage certificates (Timber Carbon Removals).
Existing Timber Indices mainly reflect short-lived timber products such as paper and packaging material without long-term CO2 storage. Timber Finance has therefore developed the first Carbon Capture & Storage Index with a focus on the CO2 storage capacity in long-lived timber construction products.
