Given the recent volatility and future uncertainty that surround global stock markets, many investors are turning to environmental commodities for greater capital security. Sustainable forestry projects present unique opportunities to not only do something positive for the environment, but at the same time to acquire attractive levels of capital gain and long term investment security.
The global demand for hardwood has increased some 25 times the amount over the last 40 years, and is set to experience continued growth due to the impacts of population growth, coupled with the increased demand this helps create. The current global crackdown on illegal logging and deforestation is significantly restricting supplies that are high in demand, which is in turn driving timber prices forward, with this trend expected to continue for years to come as forestry commodities receive greater protection, essentially squeezing their supply within a market place of increasing demand. Around 40m acres of tropical forest are being destroyed each year and not being replaced, whilst international political incentivisation to protect forests increases the pressure on illegal deforestation, further enhancing timber value. This is placing an ever growing reliance upon legal cultivated plantations that are officially regulated and controlled, creating an ethical commodity management base, offering legitimate financial rewards.
Unlike traditional investment vehicles, the volatility of macroeconomics pose minimal impacts upon the value of forestry based commodities. Irrespective of governmental power transitions, currency fluctuations, interest rates or inflation, the long term standing of forestry and its primary commodity based resources are producing consistent long term growth rates, offering investors realistic and quantifiable returns towards securing future financial stability.
Due to current and projected future demands, Ecopush are currently offering analytical information upon forestry commodities that are rising in demand and diminishing in supply.
