The Global Canopy Programme is a tropical forest think tank working to demonstrate the scientific, political and business case for safeguarding forests as natural capital that underpins water, food, energy, health and climate security for all. Our vision is a world where rainforest destruction has ended. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a deforestation free economy.
GCP as an organisation is determined in pursuit of our mission, and driven by core values of innovation, collaboration, optimism and respect for those we work with, in forests and beyond. The organisation is made up of individuals who are highly knowledgeable in their chosen fields who come together to create a strong multidisciplinary team with the right experience, ideas, and access to global networks of stakeholders (corporates, policy maker and financial institutions) which can be leveraged to deliver impact.
Demonstration of GCP’s capabilities to target and engage with key stakeholders can be seen with the pioneering initiatives laid out below.
