FRA supports prediction of increased lumber exports to China

FRA has endorsed a report from a forestry market analyst claiming that Chinese demand for Canadian timber will increase in 2013.

Seattle, United States, December 31, 2012 -- Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has endorsed a report from a forestry market analyst claiming that Chinese demand for Canadian timber will increase in 2013.

British Columbia, one of the main timber growing regions in Canada, exported a total of 5.4 million cubic metres of softwood lumber in the first nine months of the year. Although this was a slight decline on the exports in the same period of 2011, Mark Kennedy of CIBC World Markets claims this is all to change.

Kennedy said that the small decline is actually quite a good result in light of the slight weakening of the Chinese real estate industry. The timber imported into China from Canada is generally used to reinforce concrete in apartment buildings and also for door and window frames. This means that imports will always be strongest when the country is building lots of homes.

FRA, a research and analysis consultancy, backs Mr Kennedy’s claims that social housing support and other stimulus moves announced by the Chinese government could mean more timber imports. He claims that between 2013 and 2015, timber imports could increase by as much as 20 per cent. Canada, in turn, supplies more than 80 per cent of all the lumber exported from the US.

In terms of China’s demand for new homes, some two million homes that were previously demolished need to be rebuilt and, even without this, China plans is to build some 10.75 million new homes every year for the coming 15 years.

FRA’s analysis partner Peter Collins, said, “With this kind of real estate development happening, we are confident that demand for sustainable timber will increase over the coming years. In fact, evidence suggests that demand will outstrip supply by some margin, which will also lead to rising prices.”

FRA claims that this all means strong returns for those who invest in sustainable forestry projects in Canada, through firms like Greenwood Management.

UN's praise of Chinese green investment welcomes by AAA

UN leader, Ban Ki-moon, has praised the Chinese government for trying its best to invest in green energy sources, but added that developed countries should lead the way on the fight against climate change.

Boston, MA, USA, December 31, 2012 -- UN leader, Ban Ki-moon, has praised the Chinese government for trying its best to invest in green energy sources, but added that developed countries should lead the way on the fight against climate change. The statement has attracted praise from Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA), which endorses green investments at any level.

Speaking after the climate change conference in Doha on 4 December, the UN secretary general, stated, "The Chinese Government has been making smart investments with the aim of diversifying their energy sources to mitigate and adapt according to their own national government policies. This is highly commendable."

He added that other growth countries, such as India, Brazil and South Africa, should also be doing their bit to ensure that they invest in green energy generation. AAA's analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, explained that Brazil is already looking at green sources of energy and is supporting other eco-friendly moves like the REDD+ scheme to reduce deforestation.

"The Brazilian government is investing in things like sustainable timber plantations to help generate alternative energy sources and sources of charcoal, which is used in the booming steel industry in Brazil."

Ban Ki-moon continued to speak about the climate change issue, stating that the developed world needs to lead the way in green investments, because, they have the most resources and modern technologies.

"Rich countries should take the lead and the U.S. should play a very important role," he added.

AAA is an alternative investment advocacy group that encourages individuals to make ethical, alternative investment choices, choosing asset classes like sustainable timberland, agricultural land and green energy.

"Many people are looking for a different way to invest following the economic crash and the resulting stock market volatility," added Mr Johnson. Timberland plantations, such as those run by Greenwood Management and other similar firms in Brazil can offer an ethical and profitable option.

Luxury Travel Ltd to Offer Unique Optional Tours Designed for discriminating travelers

Vietnam's first Luxury Tour Operator (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) has just announced a new half day tour to Co Loa Citadel, Saint Giong Temple and Thanh Chuong Palace from Hanoi.

Hanoi, Vietnam, December 30, 2012 -- Luxury Travel Ltd. has served the luxury travel industry for many years, and their staff has acquired first-hand knowledge about the travel market in Vietnam. Their advisors have visited their recommended destinations, and have personally checked out the finest hotels, resorts, restaurants, unique optional tours designed for discriminating travelers.

At 8:30 am travelers will be picked up at their hotel in Hanoi and driven to Co Loa Citadel. Co Loa Citadel is a fortress in the Red River Delta, about 20 km north of Hanoi. The fortress is spiral-shaped, and it is composed of the outer walls and the citadel. Archaeologists revealed some fragments of Dong Son pottery and a large number of bronze objects. In Co Loa Citadel, there are also two remaining temples.

Travelers will then drive to Soc Son Temple, which was built around 980 and restored thirteen times, but still keeping its traditional architectural style. If travelers climb up to the pagoda on the top of the mountain, they can see the bronze Buddha statue, weighing 20 tons and standing 8.4 meters high. Also, on the side of pagoda, there is the Buddhism Institute.

Thanh Chuong's Viet Phu (or Thanh Chuong Palace) sits on 3 hectares in the Hien Ninh Commune. Built in 2001, the estate incorporates a multitude of buildings reflecting the diversity of Vietnam's architectural heritage. Each of the buildings contains historic antiques and works of art. Throughout the buildings there are many Buddha statues and ceramic, pottery and stone objects, which Thanh Chuong has been collecting for the last 30 years. (closed on Mondays)

"Home and studio to one of the most celebrated painters in Vietnam, Thanh Chuong Palace shines as an architectural gem showcasing traditional cultural objects, exquisite antiques and compelling structures. A living space as opposed to a museum, regardless of whether history and art are your prime interests, a visit here impresses both the novice and the expert." said Pham Ha CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd.

The tour price starts from US$56 per person for 2 persons (1.200.000 VND). Price includes private pick up and drop off services, all transportation, entrance fees, and the services of an English or French-speaking guide. This offer is valid until 30 December 2013.

"Our purchasing team and product development ensures fresh, trendy and innovative products in the market. We often announce new optional tours in Vietnam. This half day trip takes you to discover the lush countryside of Hanoi, the historic Co Loa Citadel, Soc Son Temple (honoring Saint Giong) and the amazing Thanh Chuong Palace. When you book this trip, you will enjoy a leisurely tour to the countryside, its villages, rice fields, temples and pagodas. You will also have a chance to meet with a famous artist, and have a cup of tea in a unique place before continuing back to the capital at 12:30. After the tour, you are free to resquest a drop off service at the Noi Bai Airport for free of charge. This tour can be taken in the afternoon from 1 pm to 6 pm if desired." Added Pham Ha.

AAA says Sage survey shows growing interest in Social Enterprises

AAA claims that the recent results of the Sage Nonprofit Insights grant management survey in the US shows that partnering with social enterprises can benefit non profit organisations.

Boston, MA, USA, December 24, 2012 -- Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) claims that the recent results of the Sage Nonprofit Insights grant management survey in the US shows that partnering with social enterprises can benefit non profit organisations.

The survey found that 17 per cent of the US and Canadian nonprofits questioned were either currently partnering social enterprises or were planning to soon, while 32 per cent were not aware either way. Among those that are partnered with social enterprises, 90 per cent said that the partnership has been 'very' to 'somewhat' successful.

Although this is a positive sign for impact investment, there is still a problem with a lack of awareness about involvement in impact investing. Some 32 per cent of respondents had no idea if their organisation had sought to take part in impact investing.

Sage Nonprofit Solutions' general manager and senior vice president, Krista Endsley, explained how social enterprises are starting to become more involved with the non profit sector in general. "The proliferation of social enterprise programs is moving many organizations into what is called a hybrid model of operation, where both a non profit and for-profit entity coexist in order to accomplish a social or environmental mission," she said.

The researchers also found that 48 per cent said their organisation had sought the information they need to take part in a partnership with a social enterprise in the future.

AAA's analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, said that the results of the survey showed that impact investing and social enterprise in general was being taken increasingly seriously. "Investing in ethical projects, such as community projects, education or environmentally-beneficial projects, like sustainable plantations, not only brings peace of mind to investors, but they also see healthy returns."

AAA supports a range of alternative investment projects, such as the forestry investment scheme run by Greenwood Management in Brazil. The company operates sustainable plantations of teak and eucalyptus that can deliver healthy returns to investors over the medium to long-term.

URALCHEM and the Ziedot.lv Fund present New Year Gifts to seriously ill children in Latvia

URALCHEM and a leading Latvian charity organization, the Ziedot.lv Fund, held New Year activities and events for a group of seriously ill children in Latvia and members of their families. URALCHEM's CEO, Dmitry Konyaev, and the head of the Ziedot.lv Fund, Ruta Dimanta, gave presents to the children.

Riga, Latvia - December 20, 2012 -- URALCHEM and a leading Latvian charity organization, the Ziedot.lv Fund, held New Year activities and events for a group of seriously ill children in Latvia and members of their families. URALCHEM's CEO, Dmitry Konyaev, and the head of the Ziedot.lv Fund, Ruta Dimanta, gave presents to the children. These children are beneficiaries of a joint charity programme "Help for seriously ill children", which was launched in the autumn of this year.

In September 2012, URALCHEM and the Ziedot.lv Fund signed an agreement that started a charitable programme for the treatment of 20 children from Latvia in leading Russian clinics. URALCHEM is providing total funding to the amount of €80 thousand.

Since the launch of the programme, 11 families have received help with specific treatment or rehabilitation for their children using leading Russian clinics. The Ziedot.lv Fund has selected clinics and treatment programmes on the basis of doctors' recommendations and requests from parents for financial assistance. URALCHEM has currently provided €25 thousand of funding.

Dmitry Konyaev came to Latvia to show his support for the children and give them New Year presents. "We are pleased that the company's social policy in Latvia is generating results already. Together with the Ziedot.lv Fund, we intend to continue our support for the children. They are now on their way to recovery and I wish them success in the coming year in overcoming their problems," he said.

Ruta Dimanta said that the Fund treated every case individually, choosing leading medical institutions in Russia to carry out the treatments. In clinical cases involving children with rare or complex conditions requiring care outside Latvia and not funded by the state, URALCHEM's participation enables the provision of hospital and other treatment and support for the children's' families. She added, "The condition of the children who have been helped has improved significantly. We are grateful to the Russian doctors and to URALCHEM for their assistance. Our joint programme is gaining momentum and I hope that as a result, next year more families will be able to celebrate this holiday with joy."

FRA Endorses the Use of Real Christmas Trees

FRA has endorsed reports from a sustainability expert in Canada, claiming that buying a real tree is a much better choice, from a sustainability perspective, than opting for a fake tree.

Seattle, United States, December 18, 2012 -- Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has endorsed reports from a sustainability expert in Canada, claiming that buying a real tree is a much better choice, from a sustainability perspective, than opting for a fake tree.

Artificial plastic trees would need to be kept for many years to ensure that the carbon emitted in their production is saved. However, most of them head to landfill within a few years. Steve Mitchell, a lecturer on sustainability issues at the University of British Columbia, stated, "Artificial trees need to be kept for 20 years for the carbon emissions to be equivalent to using natural trees." He cited evidence from a study carried out by sustainability consultancy Ellipses in 2009.

FRA's analysis partner, Peter Collins, said, "There are, of course, many choices to make when it comes to buying a real tree, with some options being more eco-friendly than others. However, providing you choose a Christmas tree from a sustainable plantation, you are likely to make a greener choice than if you go with an artificial tree."

FRA claims that it is always a good idea to try to buy your Christmas tree from as close to your home as possible, to minimize the carbon emissions from the transport of the tree. Wild trees can be an option for some people, but it's recommended that you check the local laws on using wild trees in your area.

Another green option is to buy a Christmas tree with a root ball still attached so that it can continue to grow after Christmas. "Planting your Christmas tree in your yard after the festive season is over is a lovely thing to do and you might even get more than one Christmas out of the same tree," added Mr Collins.

FRA supports sustainable forestry investment and proved research and advisory services for those thinking of investing in forestry or timberland, through firms like Greenwood Management, which operates sustainable Christmas tree plantations in Canada.

AAA: Asian Real Estate Investments are Booming

Asian investors are extremely positive about the outlook for real estate in the region, according to AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, December 18, 2012 -- Asian investors are extremely positive about the outlook for real estate in the region, according to Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group was keen to endorse the findings of the recent Colliers 2013 Global Investor Sentiment Survey. The survey found that 70 per cent of Asian investors said they planned to increase their investment in Asia and expand their property portfolio. Some 41 per cent of those questioned about their real estate investments said they expected to achieve returns exceeding 20 per cent.

AAA's analysis partner, Anthony Johnson, said "Return on investment totalling 20 per cent is incredibly strong, suggesting that real estate in the emerging regions of Asia, such as China and India, is a really great investment for those looking to diversify their portfolios with an alternative investment."

The survey of Asian investors also discovered that 69 per cent of them expect that market conditions in real estate will improve even further in the coming five years, with only 12 per cent expecting the market to decline. There were, however, a few concerns. Some said that it was still difficult to raise capital for real estate investments, while others said that the economic conditions were still a little unpredictable.

With regards to the most popular cities to invest in property, the top five were named as Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo. The growing economies in China have prompted many investors to set their sights on office developments in Central Business District areas.

AAA is a supporter of many kinds of alternative investments, but specialises in endorsement of ethical options, like timberland investment through firms like Greenwood Management. Greenwood runs sustainably managed plantations of non-native timbers in Brazil and Canada. Investors can buy up their own sections of forest and see returns over the medium term.
