as the hidden champion
of sustainable finance
Timber is rapidly gaining importance as a Carbon Dioxide Removal Technology (CDR). Sustainably managed forests and timber construction are the most efficient way to extract CO2 from the atmosphere and store it long-term. Mass Timber has the potential to make a significant contribution to combating climate change.
We promote the sustainable investment opportunities of the forest and timber industry through the development of new financial products, carbon credits, whitepapers and advisory services.
Around 40% of global CO2 emissions currently stem from the construction industry. Mass timber can change that.
