- The latest campaign from Greenpeace throws a welcome spotlight on how global demand for palm oil is still driving tropical deforestation — despite significant efforts to address this problem over the last 15 years.
- How would you feel if you knew that your pension fund or life-savings were being invested in destroying tropical forests and other important wildlife habitats? That they were funding the expansion of agriculture into native forest?
- Most people do not realise how much soy is in their diets... but why is growing demand for this protein crop such a problem? We asked the experts.
- New research shows that deforestation levels are still increasing in the Cerrado. Global Canopy is one of the signatories to the Cerrado Manifesto – how can this initiative help drive deforestation down?
What We Do
All our work focuses on the production, trade and financing of commodities such as soy, beef and palm oil that are responsible for two thirds of deforestation worldwide:
Bringing unprecedented transparency to the commodity supply chains which run from forest landscapes to consumers worldwide
The Finance Sector
Following the trillions of dollars in loans and investments linked to deforestation, and enabling better decision-making on natural capital by financial institutions
Financing Sustainable Landscapes
Supporting forward-thinking governments in key forest regions to secure investment to protect forests, boost agricultural productivity and improve water security
