Our approach

At Global Canopy we focus on the market forces driving two thirds of deforestation worldwide.

We do not create protected areas to keep rainforests standing, but focus instead on the production, trade and financing of the key commodities responsible for agricultural expansion into tropical forests.

We provide data, insight and guidance for the companies, investors and governments already taking positive action, and help shine a light on those that need to do more.

And we target the trillions of dollars of investment and lending which contribute to destroying forests and other vital natural capital, while highlighting new opportunities for sustainable investment.
