London, 12 October 2017 – For the third successive year, Asia Plantation Capital has garnered the title of ‘Forestry Investment Company of the Year’ at The European Magazine’s Business Awards 2017. Asia Plantation Capital is proud to have been recognized yet again for its progress, competitiveness and outstanding performance in its highly specialized industry sector.
Over many years, The European Magazine has recognized and celebrated achievement, innovation and excellence through its annual awards program.

Part of the Asia Plantation Capital Group, Asia Plantation Capital (APC) also serves as plantation and agricultural managers and advisors to several Private Equity Funds that focus on the forestry, farming, and renewable energy sectors.
“We are incredibly proud that Asia Plantation Capital has received this award once again,” said Mr Barry Rawlinson, Asia Plantation Capital Group Chief Executive Officer. “We have grown tremendously in the last few years, and with that growth comes rising expectations. This always adds pressure to us as a company, but it’s pressure we’re confident in dealing with. It would have been easy to lose sight of what we believe in and what we have always strives to achieve, but rather than getting complacent after receiving yet another prestigious accolade, it simply makes us work harder. The standards have been raised once again, and we will aim to do even better in the future. “This award,” Rawlinson concluded, “is a testament to the fact that we have succeeded by maintaining our core principles and values. We are committed to sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and respect for the environment, and this recognition of our values and efforts is very much appreciated by everyone involved.”
