Sustainability Reports

RMS has a strong stewardship ethic, which has been a cornerstone of our business since our founding in 1950. We continue to build on that foundation and view it as an integral part of our company culture today. These reports describe our company-wide efforts to measure and reflect upon our performance on a broad range of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters. They also provide our investors, employees and partners, as well as others who may have interest in our work on sustainability, environmental stewardship and social engagement, with the information they need to help us achieve continuous improvement on the ESG dimension of our business.

RMS Receives SAF's 2020 Employer Leadership Award

RMS is proud to be recognized as the #2020 recipient of the Society of American Foresters (SAF) Award for Employer Leadership. To be recognized by your professional peers is an honor of the highest magnitude. One of the things that makes RMS different among timberland investment management organizations is our forestry DNA. We are a team of foresters and forest investment professionals seeking to apply the very best forest management practice where we oversee assets for our investors. We believe the capacity to practice exceptional forestry for our clients is the key to creating forest value and that's why we are focused on recruiting and retaining exceptional talent. Our foresters are an important part of RMS' value proposition and we believe they help set us apart in ways that our investors recognize and appreciate.
