  • ENHANCING BIODIVERSITY AND RETURNS THROUGH REFORESTATION WITH MIXED, NATIVE AND EXOTIC SPECIES
  • Presented by Andreas Eke Director Futuro Forestal www.futuroforestal.com
  • Content
    • Short History
    • Unique positioning
    • Located in region
    • Parallel Management Structure
    • Native and exotic species mixed stands
  • Futuro Forestal
    • Since 1994 in Central America
    • Pioneers in mixed native species reforestation
    • FSC certified since beginning
    • First ever B2B carbon transaction from reforestation
    • First native species only big scale investment project
    • 15 years of field experience, scientific research and institutional cooperation
  • From small scale to uniquely positioned TIMO Locating, structuring, set up, maintenance and exit of forest investments
  • Our unique approach
    • Located in the region
    • Parallel Management Structure
    • Set of techniques to manage native with exotic species
    • Enablers for high biodiversity
  • 1. Located in region
    • HQ in Panama
    • Mostly local teams
    • Wide network of foresters, researchers and NGOs
    • Company culture toward field success
  • Local Teams
  • 2. Parallel Management Structure Production Management Structure Foundation for community involvement, social benefits and scientific research
  • Environmental training in Nicaragua In cooperation with University of Leon and the German Development Bank
  • Reforestation Program with schools
  • 3. Mixed Native and Exotic Species Approach Solution for enhanced biodiversity, optimized growth performance and higher yield.
  • Forest Investments
    • Forest Lands is a growing tangible asset class of investment portfolios
    • Forest investment ≠ automatically environmentally friendly
    • Mixed species reforestation is a new and underutilized subset of forest investments
  • Monoculture performs on paper
    • Inadequate management and poor soil selection can get inferior results
    • Monoculture mostly does not enhance biodiversity
    • Mixed native and exotic species perform in the field
  • Monoculture failing to thrive Soil conditions require different species
  • Monoculture is less biodiversity
  • Healthy Mixed Stands Forest
  • Exotic Monoculture versus Mixed Native Species
    • Both models offer:
    • Production of precious tropical hardwood
    • Carbon sequestration
  • Additional native species approach advantages
    • High biodiversity – habitat function for flora and fauna
    • Corridor function for endangered animals
    • Soil usage optimization by diversity
    • Positive hydrological function
    • Potential Non timber products
    • Landscape & beauty
  • Soil variety on 1 plantation
  • Panama Soil 95% was forest cover > 50% is fit for natives < 4% is fit for teak
  • What drives the performance of the mixed species model?
    • Project layout matching soil qualities with individual requirements of the tree species
    • Species knowledge from 15 years experience
    • Detailed soil and site
    • analysis
    • Professional
    • forest management
  • Existing opportunity of a Biodiversity Investment
    • Introducing Timber Opportunities Fund
    • Caudex Capital-Futuro Forestal joint venture
    • Luxemburg SICAV-SIF structure
    • Latin American focus
    • First project being implemented
    • Diversified project pipe line
    • Forestry management balancing nature and business- high biodiversity benefits
  • THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION
  • The fund is the most advanced investment tool in the forestry world
    • There is no systemic coincidence between the 90 Mio year old tropical ecosystems and the several hundreds years old investment mandates of highest IRR possible
    • But for long term real sustainability we need something difficult to ask for: Lower returns for more social and environmental benefits.
  • We need a new mandate
    • Not the highest possible IRR but highest possible biodiversity and social impact and moderate returns.
    • We are starting a group of interested stakeholders to develop FF3.0 you are invited
