ESG (environmental, social, and governance) is a general term used in capital markets and by investors to evaluate corporate behavior to determine the future financial performance/benefit of investing in new companies and innovations. ESG is the new standard by which corporations, non-profits, and start-ups stand out in the crowd, whether competing for capital or market share. A closer look at forestlands as an ESG investment will show that forestlands check all the boxes. Tree farm certification, forest practice rules, and habitat conservation plans are a few of the voluntary and regulatory management protocols designed to improve the landscape aesthetic, forest health, and ecosystem functionality. All of these are ESG centric.

The Pacific Northwest boasts one of the healthiest ecosystems in the world. The compounded benefit to investing in forestland both for its carbon/oxygen conversion, byproducts such as edibles, and recreation, is there is a viable carbon/harvest opportunity for those who want to maximize the intangible eco-asset value and the parallel tangible ROI. Mitigation Land Banks with an integrated carbon sequestration platform provide exceptional opportunity and ecosystem benefit almost anywhere in the eight Western regional states.
