Canopy is an environmental not for profit working to protect ancient and endangered forests by transforming the impacts of the paper and fabric supply chains. Its CanopyStyle initiative has now surpassed 125 brand partners representing over US$134bn in annual revenue, including H&M, Zara/Inditex, Stella McCartney and VF Corp, committed to end their use of ancient and endangered forests. 

Most recently, Uniqlo owner Fast Retailing signed up to the policy, committing to eliminating its use of ancient and endangered forests as well as advancing conservation solutions in places such as Québec, Canada's, Broadback Forest. 

The move followed a similar commitment by zLabels, a subsidiary of Berlin-based fashion e-tailer Zalando, and its 18 brands which signed up to the policy in February, alongside Canadian ethical clothing brand TAMGA Designs, leading Swedish clothing chain MQ Retail, and Australia's modern bohemian fashion brand Spell & The Gypsy Collective.

20 more brands commit to the CanopyStyle initiative

All partner brands have committed to eliminate their use of ancient and endangered forests, as well as advance conservation solutions in landscapes of hope such as Indonesia's Leuser Ecosystem, Vancouver Island's rainforests and Canada's Boreal forest.

Here is a list of the brands and retailers that have joined the campaign.
