    1. 1. ENHANCING BIODIVERSITY AND RETURNS THROUGH REFORESTATION WITH MIXED, NATIVE AND EXOTIC SPECIES
    2. 2. Presented by Andreas Eke Director Futuro Forestal www.futuroforestal.com
    3. 3. Content <ul><li>Short History </li></ul><ul><li>Unique positioning </li></ul><ul><li>Located in region </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel Management Structure </li></ul><ul><li>Native and exotic species mixed stands </li></ul>
    4. 4. Futuro Forestal <ul><li>Since 1994 in Central America </li></ul><ul><li>Pioneers in mixed native species reforestation </li></ul><ul><li>FSC certified since beginning </li></ul><ul><li>First ever B2B carbon transaction from reforestation </li></ul><ul><li>First native species only big scale investment project </li></ul><ul><li>15 years of field experience, scientific research and institutional cooperation </li></ul>
    5. 5. From small scale to uniquely positioned TIMO Locating, structuring, set up, maintenance and exit of forest investments
    6. 6. Our unique approach <ul><li>Located in the region </li></ul><ul><li>Parallel Management Structure </li></ul><ul><li>Set of techniques to manage native with exotic species </li></ul><ul><li>Enablers for high biodiversity </li></ul>
    7. 7. 1. Located in region <ul><li>HQ in Panama </li></ul><ul><li>Mostly local teams </li></ul><ul><li>Wide network of foresters, researchers and NGOs </li></ul><ul><li>Company culture toward field success </li></ul>
    8. 8. Local Teams
    9. 9. 2. Parallel Management Structure Production Management Structure Foundation for community involvement, social benefits and scientific research
    10. 10. Environmental training in Nicaragua In cooperation with University of Leon and the German Development Bank
    11. 11. Reforestation Program with schools
    12. 12. 3. Mixed Native and Exotic Species Approach Solution for enhanced biodiversity, optimized growth performance and higher yield.
    13. 13. Forest Investments <ul><li>Forest Lands is a growing tangible asset class of investment portfolios </li></ul><ul><li>Forest investment ≠ automatically environmentally friendly </li></ul><ul><li>Mixed species reforestation is a new and underutilized subset of forest investments </li></ul>
    14. 14. Monoculture performs on paper <ul><li>Inadequate management and poor soil selection can get inferior results </li></ul><ul><li>Monoculture mostly does not enhance biodiversity </li></ul><ul><li>Mixed native and exotic species perform in the field </li></ul>
    15. 15. Monoculture failing to thrive Soil conditions require different species
    16. 16. Monoculture is less biodiversity
    17. 17. Healthy Mixed Stands Forest
    18. 18. Exotic Monoculture versus Mixed Native Species <ul><li>Both models offer: </li></ul><ul><li>Production of precious tropical hardwood </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon sequestration </li></ul>
    19. 19. Additional native species approach advantages <ul><li>High biodiversity – habitat function for flora and fauna </li></ul><ul><li>Corridor function for endangered animals </li></ul><ul><li>Soil usage optimization by diversity </li></ul><ul><li>Positive hydrological function </li></ul><ul><li>Potential Non timber products </li></ul><ul><li>Landscape & beauty </li></ul>
    20. 20. Soil variety on 1 plantation
    21. 21. Panama Soil 95% was forest cover > 50% is fit for natives < 4% is fit for teak
    22. 22. What drives the performance of the mixed species model? <ul><li>Project layout matching soil qualities with individual requirements of the tree species </li></ul><ul><li>Species knowledge from 15 years experience </li></ul><ul><li>Detailed soil and site </li></ul><ul><li>analysis </li></ul><ul><li>Professional </li></ul><ul><li>forest management </li></ul>
    23. 23. Existing opportunity of a Biodiversity Investment <ul><li>Introducing Timber Opportunities Fund </li></ul><ul><li>Caudex Capital-Futuro Forestal joint venture </li></ul><ul><li>Luxemburg SICAV-SIF structure </li></ul><ul><li>Latin American focus </li></ul><ul><li>First project being implemented </li></ul><ul><li>Diversified project pipe line </li></ul><ul><li>Forestry management balancing nature and business- high biodiversity benefits </li></ul>
    24. 24. THANK YOU FOR YOUR ATTENTION
    25. 25. The fund is the most advanced investment tool in the forestry world <ul><li>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 </li></ul><ul><li>But for long term real sustainability we need something difficult to ask for: Lower returns for more social and environmental benefits. </li></ul>
    26. 26. We need a new mandate <ul><li>Not the highest possible IRR but highest possible biodiversity and social impact and moderate returns. </li></ul><ul><li>We are starting a group of interested stakeholders to develop FF3.0 you are invited </li></ul>
