Providing data to enable targeted campaigns

Our data and insights are regularly used by environmental and human rights non-profits including Greenpeace, Mighty Earth and WWF among many others. We’ve worked with Global Witness, using our data to show the impact delays to both the US Forest Act and the UK Environment Act are having on tropical forests. We worked with UNEP to publish the State of Finance for Nature report at COP28.

Our Supply Chain Transparency programme strengthens accountability by improving assessments of risk exposure and sharpening the focus of campaigns and enforcement. Trase enables civil society to link traders and import markets – and retailers in those markets – to deforestation risk.

Our Corporate Performance programme helps civil society organisations to apply greater pressure on the companies and financial institutions that are most influential in driving tropical deforestation. Our accountability platforms, Forest 500 and Deforestation Action Tracker score and rank companies and financial institutions on their policies on forest-risk commodities – beef, leather, palm oil, paper, soy and timber – and the implementation of these policies.

Participating in collaborative initiatives

We are supporting partners in the Accountability Framework Initiative, a collaborative effort to build and scale up ethical supply chains for agricultural and forestry products.

Global Canopy has been a partner on the New York Declaration on Forests (NYDF) progress assessment since it began in 2014. We are also active members of the non-profit groups: Tropical Forest Alliance and the UK NGO Forest Coalition.
