During the World Leaders Summit’s Forest Day Session at COP26 on Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the United States launched the Forest Investors Club. The Forest Investor Club is a network of leading public and private financial institutions and other investors who aim to unlock and scale up investments that support climate-aligned outcomes in the land sector.
The Forest Investor Club will hasten the pace, increase the scale, and expand the scope of forest and nature investment by identifying and facilitating access to a pipeline of investments in forests and nature, collaborating under complementary partnerships to unlock investment opportunities, and working to develop solutions to investment barriers and bottlenecks.
The founding members of the club include: Apple, BTG Pactual Timberland Investment Group, Conservation International, the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, Deutsche Bank, Finnfund, Goldman Sachs, Hancock Natural Resources (a Manulife Investment Management Company), Lombard Odier, Mirova, New Forests, Norfund, Pollination, SAIL Ventures, The Nature Conservancy, in collaboration with Network Partners, including Convergence Blended Finance, and the Natural Capital Investment Alliance.
