Global Canopy is an agile and entrepreneurial charity with an outsized impact. Our aim is to end large-scale deforestation, a global problem with huge hidden costs for people and prosperity.


We work smart, by focusing on the big market levers driving deforestation at regional, national and international levels. And we bring a fresh approach to identifying, targeting, and mobilising action among the key powerbrokers - the governments, businesses and financial institutions worldwide - with the power to end this global ‘deforestation economy’.  Increasingly, we also address related environmental and social impacts caused by the same market dynamics that are converting the world’s rainforests into land for agricultural commodities: our systemic failure to account for the vital benefits we receive from nature.


Over the last 16 years we have built up a strong track record and an international reputation for innovation and effectiveness. For more on our work see:www.globalcanopy.org; and for flagship initiatives falling under our 3 key programmatic areas:www.trase.earthhttp://www.naturalcapitalfinancealliance.org/ and www.financingsustainablelandscapes.org.
