Forestry investors are exposed to a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. How those factors impact investments – ultimately, whether they materialise as risks or opportunities for value creation – depends largely on an investor’s responsible investment approach.
This responsible investment due diligence questionnaire (DDQ) has been developed to help investors appraising potential forestry investment managers to evaluate how a manager handles environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors.
93 PRI signatories (out of over 1,400 total signatories), largely concentrated in Europe and North America, reported having forestry investments in 2018. This compares with 60 signatories in 2014.
This webinar explores the role of forestry in the fight against climate change, with a particular focus on how emissions trading schemes can provide opportunities to forestry investors and managers to make market returns while also generating positive environmental impact.
