Legacy Property Divestment

Maximizing Value by Integrating Natural Capital

Most commercial property is acquired to fulfill a specific purpose such as petroleum exploration and production, mining, manufacturing, infrastructure, and other industrial uses. It additionally is purchased to preserve the opportunity for future development or provide security buffers. When these parcels’ utilization purposes have been exhausted, or their geographic locations are no longer viable, there could be multiple benefits derived from a strategic divestment plan.

By employing a fresh perspective through integrating the natural capital associated on and around the property, Joule Tree’s team of expert innovators identifies hidden value of the property putting your natural capital to work for you. That value can be appreciated in numerous avenues including offsetting the depreciated value traditionally reflected on a balance sheet.

Examples of additional value include:

  • Obtaining regulatory closure cost-effectively
  • Offsetting potential environmental liability
  • Reducing reserves on a balance sheet
  • Minimizing unnecessary capital expenditures
  • Generating monetary value
  • Creating greater shareholder value

The natural capital contained within a corporate portfolio has the potential to create value regardless of its geographical location. The ecosystem services associated with natural capital on one site may provide the nexus offsetting impact or liability on another site. The following are examples:

  • Mitigation offsets
  • Compensatory Restoration
  • Biodiversity Offsets
  • Supplemental Environmental Projects (SEPs)
  • Damage Settlements

In short, Joule Tree is expertly positioned to support you in integrating natural capital into your legacy property divestment strategy so that no value is left behind.
