SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
IS OUR CORE COMPETENCY

As owner of forest land and a leading
afforestation company, we have a wide-ranging expertise in forestry. We are convinced that timber as a product has broad applications. The environmental advantages of wood as a material in industries such as construction and energy are undisputed.

We advocate active and sustainable forest management, as well as afforestation from suitable provenances – this enables the forest to fulfil its climate role.

We invest in companies operating in the areas of forest plant production and forest technology service.
