The BaumInvest Share

The BaumInvest share – Investing with a purpose!

 

You invest in shares of BaumInvest AG, a non-listed public limited company, with headquarters in Freiburg im Breisgau and three subsidiaries in Costa Rica.

With 15 years of experience, we are one of the pioneers and pioneers in the field of sustainable reforestation in the tropics.
BaumInvest AG represents a solid investment and financing concept: tangible assets such as land, forestry and forest stands make up the main part of the assets in BaumInvest AG and are at the same time production factors for the long-term generation of sustainable timber as well as CO2 certificates. We manage a total of 2,060 hectares of land in Costa Rica, spread over five locations. This year we are expanding this area by 1,550 hectares. Of this, over 1,000 hectares will be actively reforested for corporate clients as part of a CO2 corporate forest.

With the BaumInvest share, you acquire a company share in BaumInvest AG and thus receive proportional asset rights. This means that when profits are distributed, you have the right to a share of the profits corresponding to your shareholding (dividend payout) and in the event of future capital increases, you receive a subscription right. Within the framework of the annual general meeting, you are entitled to use your voting and information rights and thus participate, for example, in the election of the supervisory board, the decision on the appropriation of the company’s profits or other important company decisions.

BaumInvest is currently over 99 percent equity-financed. The majority of the currently more than 2,000 BaumInvest shareholders are private investors.

In which business areas does BaumInvest AG operate?

Our two business areas based on the reforestation of mixed forests are: Sustainable forestry and carbon compensation.

Sustainable Forestry

The right solution to the demand for sustainably produced, tropical value timber.

Our timber production covers approximately 1,280 hectares of sustainably managed mixed forests at five sites in northern Costa Rica. Our “Sustainable Forestry” concept combines fast-growing, shade-producing pioneer tree species, e.g. Cebo or Botarrama, with high-quality value timber species, such as Almendro, pilon, or Guapinol. This allows optimal conditions for tree growth of the value woods in the first years and at the same time increases biodiversity – a sustainable and economic system with a future.

Wood from sustainable forestry of BaumInvest AG
Harvesting is a selective process and replanting is a continuous effort in our sustainably managed mixed forests. In Costa Rica, these value timber species require approximately 30-35 years to reach harvest maturity.

The result: continuously growing value woods from a permanent and sustainable forest management system.

Timber transport on our sustainable forestry areas
Valuable woods have been experiencing high demand for years with a simultaneous decline in supply. We are certain that the demand for high-quality value woods from sustainable management will remain and continue to increase. This ensures rising timber prices and makes an investment in tropical forestry particularly attractive.

In addition, some governments (including Costa Rica) are dependent on timber imports, as they are unable to meet their domestic timber needs autonomously. The processing industry in Costa Rica currently imports a significant share of its domestic wood demand (approx. 34.4 % of total domestic wood demand of 655,000 m3 in 2020).

Carbon Compensation:

An essential and natural way to remove climate-damaging carbon from the atmosphere.

BaumInvest AG produces and sells CO2 certificates for carbon compensation on the voluntary market – in particular to companies that want to offset unavoidable carbon emissions. The carbon storage capacity of our forests is confirmed in the form of CO2 certificates via a certification process according to the internationally recognized Gold Standard.
Since 2007, BaumInvest AG has sequestered a total of 175,000t of carbon in its forest areas.

Since 2021, BaumInvest AG has also offered corporate customers the opportunity to invest in forest climate protection projects for their own compensation of emissions. By doing this, we reforest so-called Company Carbon Forests on behalf of our customers. Our innovative planting concept – with native tree species and accompanying vegetation to protect the tree seedlings – is the basis for the creation of a near-natural mixed forest.
Reforestation - An essential and natural way to remove climate-damaging carbon from the atmosphere.
In addition to carbon sequestration, this supports other positive effects such as the preservation and increase of biodiversity and the creation of jobs as well as the reactivation of soil life, and water storage.

We are currently implementing the first Company Carbon Forest project within Gold Standard’s newly created “Program of Activity” mechanism on a reforestation area of more than 1,000 hectares for two corporate clients in Costa Rica.
The demand for natural carbon offset solutions is currently increasing significantly due to the ambitious climate protection targets of most European companies. We predict a large growth market in this area.
