Since 2020, the forest and timber industry is at the beginning of a significant growth cycle. After years of low investment and lumber prices, the industry is now undergoing transformative changes: European and North American governments are supporting timber construction through major regulatory changes – institutional investors have rediscovered the timber value chain and industry innovation has produced Timber Skyscrapers and highway bridges. Timber is gaining appreciation as a building material, timber construction is booming, and with it the entire industry.
Additionally, the Paris Climate Agreement and the net-zero commitments of companies are increasing the relevance of the forestry and timber industry and creating attractive investment opportunities for investors. After all, timber is the “hidden champion” of sustainable finance and belongs in the portfolio of every climate-conscious investor.
Since existing Timber Indices have predominately focused on forests or the paper and packaging industry, Timber Finance has developed the Timber Finance Carbon Capture & Storage Index. The world’s first index of the modern forest and timber industry.

The Timber Finance Carbon Capture & Storage Index represents the forest and timber industry in the USA, Canada, and Europe. The index focuses on the positive climate impact produced by the use of engineered timber in the construction sector. It covers the entire Mass Timber value chain, from forest to frame and highlights the CO2 impact generated by Timber construction.
Innovative companies from the bioeconomy and engineered timber producers were integrated. Additionally, leading global construction companies with a dedicated timber construction strategy were included.
The companies in the Timber Finance Index make a positive contribution to the following SDGs (11, 12, 13, 15).
Pure play companies from the pulp, paper, packaging sectors, and other short-term Timber product producers were excluded.
Every 6 months, the Timber Finance Index is reviewed to ensure that all company information is up to date.
The TFI Index shows a clear outperformance since March 2020 compared to the MSCI World and the S&P Timber and Forest index.
