Sustainable forest management means planting trees for a future worth living.

Thinking ahead together.

Roughly one third of the Earth’s surface is covered in forest – a total area of around 4 billion hectares. Forests are a defining feature of our environment and have always been an important natural resource for humans and animals. This is why we choose to invest in forests and their sustainable management, and in addition we’re also helping to increase CO2 absorption.

The world’s forests are in danger: through misuse, large-scale deforestation and a lack of environmentally sustainable strategies. We know: forests are not investments for generating fast money. They require one thing above all else: time. Investment in our forests is a long-term project, spanning generations.

We take precisely this time and invest in projects that are run sustainably, ecologically and economically. For example, in Finland, where we have invested in a healthy, sensibly used forest, or in Uruguay, where we are carrying out reforestation projects.
