The Initiative

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.

The Timber Finance Initiative, founded in 2021, is the Swiss competence center for timber investments.

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. 

We bridge the gap between investors and the timber industry.

Services

FROM REFORESTATION TO A CIRCULAR WOOD INDUSTRY

Investors are currently concentrating on reducing CO2 through projects in the field of afforestation and forest protection. But this is only the beginning of a whole value chain of CO2-friendly investment opportunities: Through the sustainable management of forests, we can generate harvests that flow into the circular timber industry. By harvesting wood and using these materials in construction, we can efficiently replace carbon-intensive materials such as steel and concrete.

SUSTAINABLE: GROW, STORE CO2, BUILD, REPEAT

Timber construction can store CO2 cost-effectively in the long term and at the same time improve the general health of our forests and promote their CO2 storage capacity. Sustainable timber construction means that our forest is preserved and that the excess wood is stored in our buildings for the long term every year. In this way we keep the CO2 storage capacity of our forest and with our houses we create a second “built forest”, which considerably expands the entire CO2 storage capacity of the planet.

A MARKETPLACE FOR WOOD INVESTMENT

Thanks to our deep understanding of the timber industry and our financial expertise, we enable companies in the timber industry to access the capital markets. We are creating a marketplace for CO2-storing buildings with the aim of directing investments into a CO2-neutral industry.
