The Canopy Story
"We had been camped on a blockade in Clayoquot Sound for four weeks, and winter was moving in. Forests around the world were being destroyed as we stood there, and I knew it was just a matter of time before the logging trucks made it past us and the magnificent cedar trees we had been protecting would be gone. I knew there had to be a better way. Canopy grew out of that conviction.”
~ Nicole Rycroft, Founder and Executive Director, Canopy
Canopy is dedicated to protecting forests, climate and species—we have been since day one. We are determined to create permanent solutions to the problem of forest destruction.
50% of forests are logged for paper, so we’ve been focused on the world’s biggest paper buyers since day one too.
Canopy understands that business leaders can be powerful forces for environmental change. We work with 700 of the world’s largest paper consumers to provide the tools and knowledge they need to protect forests in Canada and around the world.
