Webinar agenda
Investing in forestry and timber assets is nothing new. But investors are increasingly seeing the attraction of more sustainable forestry investments, which can yield a variety of income streams and help investors meet their corporate social responsibility objectives. Carbon credits, in particular, are likely to form a much larger part of financing for forestry projects than is currently the case. Efforts to include  more forestry projects in  a post-2012 international climate change deal, are slated to be agreed in Cancun at the end of this year.
