With the growth of the world’s population, the demand for commodities grows.
 Until a short while ago it seemed as if these were readily available to cover the demand.

Sustainable management is a term which originally came from forestry but today is widely applied to a variety of other economic principles.

The ecological aspect of accepting responsibility for future generations is the guiding principle behind securing sustainable growth in the context to maximizing the rate of return from an investment.

This combination of ecological and economic aspects can be achieved through afforestation.

The product wood has – unlike any other commodity – a tremendously broad spectrum of usage. A few of these are its application in the energy sector, as an essential in furniture and construction, its insulation properties, the paper industry and many other specialized uses.

When the many other characteristics of wood are added in this list could almost become infinitely long.

Between 1980 and 1990 mankind has annually cut down 15.5 million hectares of forest. While these figures decreased to 13.7 million hectares during the following decade this number still resembles the surface area of Germany.

And while the demand increases through an ever-growing population worldwide, the supply decreases and demand can hardly be met today thus driving the price for wood to skyrocketing levels.

What is more, we are observing a changing environmental awareness. The global financial markets recently introduced the term “socially responsible investing” (SRI) which consider social, ethical and ecological aspects as factors in the return on investment and which are then incorporated into decision making processes in the portfolios.

Our project Tropenwald_1 has proved that we are not only capable of handling large scale projects in Germany, but also worldwide.
