Southeast Asia

Southeast Asia offers access to growing regional timber demand and rising carbon markets with the opportunity to generate high impact around climate change mitigation, community development, and biodiversity.


New Forests has operated in Southeast Asia since 2008 and launched the first institutional Southeast Asia forestry fund. We are the only global forestry investment manager with a dedicated presence in the region.

Southeast Asia is exposed to rising regional demand for timber products, correlated with growing wood products manufacturing and rising GDP.

The growing demand from the voluntary carbon market is creating new investment opportunities in conservation and ecosystem restoration.
