Our Goals & Campaigns
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Did You Know?
Coffee is for the birds!
The connection between birds, coffee plants and forests is integral to produce the finest brew. Without the lush forest canopy, migratory birds would not be able to help control insects or fertilize soils at the coffee plantations.
