Many overseas timber companies, corporations and pension funds have recognized New Zealand’s competitive advantage in plantation forestry and have invested in New Zealand Radiata Pine Forests.
Companies worldwide are moving to reduce carbon emissions and the most cost effective way to acquire carbon is to grow it through forest ownership.
By establishing a new forest a company can secure the cost of carbon going forward thus reducing exposure to an inflationary carbon price.
It is an investment in a real asset ‘land and trees’, the carbon credits can be banked and used to offset emissions or simply sold when the price is right.
With increasing pressure on organisations to offset their carbon emissions, growing your own plantation forest for carbon credits is a cost effective way to secure the cost of carbon going forward.
