Astarte Capital Partners LLP (“Astarte”), a real assets-focused investment firm, and SilviPar AB (“SilviPar”), a leading forestry development and management company headquartered in Stockholm, are pleased to announce the launch of the SA Impact Forestry Fund (“SAIFF” or the “Fund”), a new investment platform dedicated to sustainable forestry, with an immediate focus on Paraguay.
SAIFF will focus on acquiring low productivity farmland, suitable for forestation and with limited alternative uses, converting it into a sustainable, cost efficient forestry portfolio. It is well positioned to capitalise on strong macro-economic tailwinds, producing wood for the global fibre and pulp markets, and generating new credits for the carbon offset market. The fund will also bring significant ESG benefits, including the development of local infrastructure, the creation of employment, enhanced economic activity, greater carbon sequestration, lower fossil-based product usage and reduced deforestation of natural rainforest.
