asc impact believes that the global agriculture and forestry industry is of enormous social and
economic importance and offers attractive investment opportunities.
asc impact therefore advises selected agricultural and forestry projects that demonstrably absorb large quantities of CO2, improve soil quality and have a positive impact on local development.
Across all projects, over 30 million tons of CO2 will be absorbed. At the same time, investments make an important contribution to ensuring a secure and sustainable food supply in the target regions.
Geographically, investments be focussed on emerging countries in Sub-Sahara Africa and Eastern Europe.
In the agricultural sector, the current deal flow is comprised of purchased and leased land totaling approximately 147,000 hectares. This corresponds to a total investment volume of EUR 500 million with EUR 250 million in equity. Investments will be made primarily in Eastern Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition to the contribution to local development, asc impact‘s philosophy in the agricultural sector focuses on ensuring a secure and sustainable food supply.

Within the target countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, the current deal flow is comprised of a total
volume of around EUR 100 million with EUR 100 million equity covering more than 50.000 hectares.
Investments will be made in Sub-Saharan Africa, mainly in Angola, Ethiopia and Congo-Brazzaville. Since forestry and agriculture makes a considerable contribution to climate protection by absorbing large quantities of CO2, CO2-binding is a cornerstone of asc impact's investment philosophy.
At the same time, forestry also makes an important contribution to local development in the target regions by creating new jobs in the wood processing industry and by providing steel and cement substitutes for sustainable construction.
In addition to the contribution to local development, asc impact's philosophy in the agricultural sector focuses on ensuring a secure and sustainable food supply.
