    • Founded: Forest Trends was founded in 1999 by a small group of leaders from forest industry, donors, and environmental groups.
    • President and CEO: Michael Jenkins
    • Mission: Our mission is four-fold: to expand the value of forests to society; to promote sustainable forest management and conservation by creating and capturing market values for ecosystem services; to support innovative projects and companies that are developing these markets; and to enhance the livelihoods of local communities living in and around those forests. We do this by analyzing strategic market and policy issues, catalyzing connections between forward looking producers, communities and investors, and developing new financial tools to help markets work for conservation and people. Our approach integrates the fundamental dimensions of ecology, economy and equity because our goal is to have an impact on a scale that is meaningful globally and for a diverse set of stakeholders.

    • Board: Forest Trends internalizes the wide diversity of opinions and interests active in global forest issues, yet is bound by the common desire to increase the contribution of markets to improved forest conservation and the livelihoods of people. MORE
