Carbon Forestry is an industry-led event discussing the future of forestry and carbon markets. It covers new opportunities and policies in carbon planting, investment and the growing carbon offset markets

Event Summary

Over 320 industry leaders, corporate emitters and investors were hosted at the 4th Annual Carbon Forestry Conference run by Innovatek in Rotorua on 9-10 August 2022.

With the policy environment being so dynamic right now, seedling sales skyrocketing and significant activity around investment planning to establish new forestry portfolios to meet growing emissions obligations, the strong line-up of Carbon Forestry 2022 speakers delivered insights into the current state of the carbon forestry industry.

Lively panel discussions allowed for a range of question-and-answer sessions throughout the two half-days that the event ran.

How carbon markets and the Emissions Trading Scheme are working were detailed by speakers along with what’s likely to change in future. Experienced forest and asset managers also outlined how the economics of ‘exotics-to-natives’ as a combined investment strategy is set to deliver sustainable investment solutions. There was plenty of networking over the two days and feedback received to date from delegates has been excellent.
