ENVIRONMENTAL

Domain believes that the environmental investment market provides opportunities for attractive returns. The continued pressure facing ecosystems and biodiversity, coupled with the support of federal and state legislation solidifies a market for impact investments to mitigate for ecological damage.

Domain’s environmental investment strategy is focused on real property or other natural resources that have potential unrealized environmental and/or ecological value due to hydrology, function, biodiversity, habitats, topography, location, historical use, restoration potential, or other similar characteristics.

The firm’s portfolio positions Domain as an established investment manager with a national footprint – both in terms of assets under management and number of projects within the mitigation industry.

Domain environmental investments MAY BE comprised of:

  • Wetland and stream mitigation banks, habitat conservation banks, fishery  banks, environmental enforcement solutions, and direct environmental  restoration projects.
  • Emerging secondary market investment opportunities such as water quality trading and water rights, transitional timberland and agricultural properties, conservation property investments, and transferable development rights.

Our Investment

An environmental investment is an investment in real property or other natural resources that is intended to have potential environmental and ecological value due to hydrology, function, biodiversity, habitats, topography, location, historical use, restoration potential, and/or other characteristics that can be monetized through established and regulated environmental markets.

Domain Timber, through its environmental investment funds, acquires, develops, operates, and manages a variety of environmental assets for public and corporate pension plans, foundations, endowments, and high-net-worth individuals. Domain Timber currently has approximately $139 million dedicated to environmental investments, which primarily are comprised of wetland and stream mitigation banks, habitat conservation banks, fishery banks, environmental enforcement solutions, and direct environmental restoration projects. Domain Timber has also identified other emerging secondary market investment opportunities such as water quality trading and water rights, transitional timberland and agricultural properties, conservation property investments, and transferable development rights.

Domain Timber believes that the environmental investment markets provide opportunities for attractive risk-adjusted returns, primarily due to the continued pressure facing ecosystems and biodiversity, and the existing established regulatory regime that has solidified an environmental credit market through the implementation of various regulations and related guidelines.

Environmental Investment Highlights

Offers investors a unique opportunity to capitalize on the hidden potential of valuable real estate and other natural resources.
Combines a socially responsible “green” investment platform with an attractive risk-adjusted return profile.
Investments primarily focused on environmental credit markets created by existing law and regulations.
The basic underlying driver of environmental investing is based on fundamental supply and demand dynamics – as the world’s natural resources continue to be depleted, degraded and become increasingly scarce, the value of these natural resources will increase.
A “pre-infrastructure” investment – public or private development projects will not receive project permits until mitigation for environmental and ecological impacts is demonstrated to the satisfaction of the applicable regulatory bodies.
