Forest Landscape Design and Management
Form International has the unique advantage that it has ample management, investment as well as consulting experience and therefore has a pragmatic, hands-on, effective way of adding value to both design and implementation stages, thus ensuring the required quality, sustainability and performance.
Form International offers project developers and investors customized support in the pre-investment phase of new projects, asset creation and (asset) expansions, often with a vision that Form International will also play a role in subsequent implementation. Support is provided to a broad range of cases, from large commercial investment projects to grant-financed landscape and agroforestry projects. Form International delivers targeted services that support the design, engineering and proofing of the technical, market, ESG and financial aspects of projects and investments. Form International has the experience and a broad team of experts to support parties in various stages of development on different sides of the table (developer, sponsor or investor) and according to high investor and operational standards (e.g. IFC performance standards, DFI investment criteria, FSC certification). Form International can be engaged to assist the design stage with a vision to subsequently also take on a management role, sometimes in combination with an investment role. This is however optional and depends on client needs.
Your Project or Asset
Form International can support you with the design, preparation, establishment, management, and improvement or expansion of your forest landscape projects or assets. Depending on your needs, Form International can take up one or several of these roles. While local management is always situated at the operational sites, our headquarters in The Netherlands provide management support and technical assistance, while ensuring corporate governance. We believe firmly in our interactive model of strong local managers with intensive backstopping from our pool of experts operating from The Netherlands. If you are searching for a partner to create or improve forest assets, on small or large scale, please contact us.
