Our Goals & Campaigns

Protecting Forests: It’s why we get up in the morning.

Forests are habitat. That means home; home to millions of species—from Grizzly bears to lichen—home to vital carbon sinks and massive fresh water reserves. And too often home to practices that threaten to destroy them.

Straw Paper: Another Canopy Solution

Today most of the paper we use still comes straight from ancient forests, and we don’t like that. So, Canopy is working hard to kick-start the North American straw pulp and paper industry to meet our paper needs while protecting ancient forests.

Black and white and green all over:
What’s an environmental newspaper look like?

More than 100 million North Americans still start the day with the morning paper. Too bad most newspapers come from fragile forest ecosystems. That’s why Canopy is working to help industry leaders find a new way forward.

Breakthrough Global Conservation Agreements: Keeping the world’s remaining ancient forests standing

Translating the purchasing influence of large corporate consumers into tangible large-scale forest conservation is our job. Negotiating and tracking change on the ground is just one way that we ensure the sustainability interests of customers keep forests standing tall.

Climate and Forests: A vital connection

Forests are the most important carbon sinks on earth. Cutting trees down releases the carbon they store AND prevents them from storing any more. Protected forests = a stabler climate.

Fashion designers, clothing brands and apparel manufacturers are likely unaware that some of their stylish fabric creations are made from trees - let alone the trees of ancient and endangered forests.
