About Canopy:
“There are few environmental organizations that can match Canopy in its unflinching commitment to saving the world’s forests and the many species that depend on them, while having the pragmatic acumen necessary to help companies do better by those forests” – Margaret Atwood
Canopy is an award winning not for profit organization dedicated to protecting the world’s forests, species and climate and supporting the advancement of community rights. Canopy collaborates with more than 750 companies to implement robust environmental policies, catalyze innovative solutions, transform unsustainable supply chains and secure forest conservation and human rights. Best known for greening the Harry Potter series internationally, Canopy’s partners include Stella McCartney, The Gap, Scholastic, Penguin Random House, The Globe and Mail, H&M and Lonely Planet. Canopy’s work relies on the support of foundation partners and individual donors who share our passion for the planet.
Canopy is a nimble, fast-paced, results-driven conservation organization with a strong track record of success. We know that our planet is under stress and believe it’s time for change. We think 800 year-old trees don’t need to be used to make packaging, t-shirts or junk mail – and we’re committed to doing all that we can to keep them standing and develop smarter solutions. We love chocolate and playing charades. Working hard is in our DNA – as is having fun and being creative. Pragmatic and audacious, we are driven by a desire to produce results that are at a scale proportional to the environmental problems we’re grappling with.
