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.

Community Art Auction and Fundraiser

Salt Spring Coffee celebrated its commitment to a sustainable, healthy planet by raising funds at the Create for Canopy community art auction in Vancouver. 

Part of the Canopy Bird campaign, funds raised will help protect endangered forests, keeping them intact for bird habitat and providing cover for Salt Spring Coffee’s flavourful shade-grown coffee beans. 

The auction featured a special collection of works created by BC-based artists, celebrating this story beneath the forest canopy and bringing it to life!
