About us

Global Canopy is an innovative environmental organisation that targets the market forces destroying tropical forests. Since 2001, we have been testing new approaches to tackling deforestation and guiding companies, investors and governments worldwide to think differently about our planet's forests and ‘natural capital’.

We employ 35 people mainly based in our office in central Oxford with smaller teams based around the world. As an entrepreneurial think-tank, seeking to tackle deforestation differently, our team is the key to our success.
