Global Canopy Programme
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. To find out more about our work visit www.globalcanopy.org. The Forest 500 is the world’s first rainforest ratings agency. It identifies and ranks the most influential companies, financial institutions and governments in the race towards a deforestation-free global economy. It assesses the policies of 250 companies, 150 investors and lenders, 50 jurisdictions, and 50 other powerbrokers, each selected based on their exposure to forest risk commodity supply chains.
