A leader in creating carbon offsets
Carbon offsets are essential for meeting Global and Corporate Greenhouse Gas Emissions Targets, and working forests are an ideal natural capital solution for generating offsets. Campbell Global is a leader in creating carbon offsets and sequestering carbon by implementing a variety of strategies including sustainable management practices on commercial forestlands, improved forest management projects, afforestation projects and forest management regimes that yield stored carbon in harvested wood products.
Investment process and research
Timberland has the flexibility to fit into a variety of portfolios and need not be a dedicated allocation. We see our clients and other timberland investors adding their investments to a broad spectrum of allocations including: Dedicated timberland allocation, real estate, real assets, inflation edge, sustainability/impact.
Timberland investing can offer a variety of benefits:
- Inflation risk: Respond positively during inflationary environments.
- Diversification: Biological growth drives strong diversification vs. other asset classes.
- Consistent income: Steady income driven primarily by the sale of harvested logs.
- Sustainability: Sequester carbon, promote biodiversity, and deliver renewable products used across the economy
Campbell Global has a rigorous and disciplined investment approach that focuses on core timberland markets and transactions of scale. The team has developed a robust data- and technology-driven process over decades that is further informed by carbon know-how and sustainability considerations.
