Set Up a Company in the Forestry Sector in the Netherlands
Are you excited to set up a company in the forestry sector in the Netherlands?
Around 10% of the land area in the Netherlands is covered in forests, providing many opportunities for investors to start a Dutch company in the forestry sector. The two main industries within the forestry sector that investors who want to start a Dutch business in the forestry sector can invest in, namely renewable energy and timber.
Renewable energy is high on the Dutch government’s list of priorities and there is a big push towards creating sustainable energy sources that will power the country, and possibly regions beyond its borders. One of the sources being explored is using compost of local forests, as well as other by-products of the forestry sector.
For those looking at starting a business in the Netherlands in the more traditional forestry sector can invest in timber production and/or processing. This includes the cultivation of trees or setting up timber factories that manufacture timber products for industries such as construction and furniture for both the local and export markets.
