Through our dedicated work and partnerships, we have demonstrated that a small — but mighty — organization can transform global supply chains from ‘business as usual’ to a more sustainable, brighter future.

Canopy helped get North America’s first commercial-scale straw pulp mill in Washington State go live. In the years ahead we’re working to build more alternative mills to create jobs, reduce waste and bring much needed Next Generation solutions from the margins of the marketplace to the mainstream.
