About fund

This sustainable investment consists of 4 key value elements:

Biological growth: The average annual increase in timber volume in the Baltic States is from 5.5 to 7.5 m3 per hectare. However, by investing in a younger forest with a higher potential for biological growth, the growth can be much higher.

Active asset management: Active forest management in line to the highest sustainability (FSC certified) and forest industry standards. Full value chain: forest purchase, maintenance and timber sales.

Asset Consolidation: Increasing operational efficiency and reducing risk factors.

Contribution to a clean environment: CO2 absorption, which is presented in an annual sustainability report.

 

The fund aims to build a portfolio in 7-8 years that will be attractive to a strategic investor looking for vertical business integration. During the lifetime of the fund, the highest priority will be given to young / middle-aged forests with the maximum potential for biological growth. The main criteria for the formation of the future forest land portfolio:

100 km to the large timber industry

Agricultural assets <30%Average age from 20 to 40 years,

density> 100 m3 / ha

Composition of premium timber – at least 2/3 of the portfolio must consist of pine, spruce, birch

The Fund submits annual sustainability reports, which, in addition to all plantings, thinnings and other forestry activities are carried out, include data on the CO2 absorption of the assets managed by the Fund.

The companies managed by the Fund actively participate in the activities of forest associations in each country, promoting the development of sustainable forestry and various environmental initiatives.
