We believe climate-smart strategies are the future of real asset investing.
For over a decade we have been developing climate-smart approaches to natural forest management that are the key to unlocking value in a carbon-constrained future. We use our expertise in conservation finance to develop mutually beneficial public-private projects, and draw from our relationships with forest product companies, public agencies, non-profits and tribes to develop compelling investment opportunities.
We use private capital alongside conservation finance tools to acquire forestland assets with unique environmental and social attributes. We manage these lands to FSC® standards – the highest benchmark for responsible forestry. As active forestland managers we work to enhance forest health and productivity and we harvest steady amounts of timber as well as other forest products to support rural enterprises.
EFM stewards 130,000 acres and has ~$219M in capital under management and advisement, focused on the creation of long-term financial value and enduring environmental and social impact.
