      "Forests are home to more than half of all terrestrial species and support the livelihoods of millions of people. They are sources of food, medicine, lumber, tourism, recreation and aesthetic benefits. They sequester carbon, cleanse water and cycle nutrients. In spite of their critical importance, many forests around the world are under threat.1 In addition, the decline in high ecological-value forests and protected areas results in the loss of critical biodiversity as natural habitats are destroyed" [...] Transactions where we are able to identify that the client has operations in one of the following locations, or transactions where the use of proceeds is designated for assets to be developed in one of the following locations, will be subject to Enhanced Review [...] High conservation value forests: High conservation value forests are defined as areas of forest or other vegetation types that have particular importance for social or environmental reasons, including: species diversity, contribution to landscape-level mosaics of ecosystems and habitats, critical ecosystem services, community needs and cultural values"
