Investments in forestry and agriculture depend upon and impact landscapes. Under sustainable management, landscapes are resilient and provide natural resources and ecosystem services that create long-term value for communities, companies, and governments.
Indufor proactively considers ways to improve the environmental, socioeconomic, and institutional conditions that rely on and impact landscapes. As land and water grow increasingly scarce, particularly in emerging and frontier markets, investors and operators can outperform competitors and gain long-term success by integrating sustainable practices tailored to the landscape and its socio-economic and environmental characteristics.
Our work in land use, primary production, and related value chains has leveraged a complex understanding of the dynamics of sustainable landscapes in different geographies. By recognizing how diverse interest groups interact in rural landscapes, we can help our clients add value to their operations.
Our services in this area include:
- Public-private partnerships
- Green growth planning
- Natural capital valuation
- Sustainability standards and certification
- Environmental, land tenure, and social risk advisory.
