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.

Second Harvest Paper: Another Canopy Solution

Today most of the paper we use still comes straight from endangered forests, and we don’t like that. So, Canopy has developed a revolutionary new paper made from straw left over after the grain harvest.

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.

Boreal Forest Agreement:
A big win, and now a great big job.

We think Canada’s Boreal Forest is our greatest gift to the world. It contains seven of the ten largest intact forest landscapes left on earth. Canopy helped secure the unprecedented agreement to protect more than half of it. Now we’re working hard to make those commitments real.

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.
