What We Do

The world’s ancient and endangered forests are being logged at an alarming rate, putting species, communities and our climate at risk.

Canopy works with the forest industry’s biggest customers and their suppliers to develop business solutions that protect these endangered forests.

Happy 20th Anniversary Canopy!
