About us

Climate change is heating the world and the United Nations declared that 2021–2030 will be the decade for ecosystem restoration.

Nature-based solutions have a huge potential to mitigate climate change at scale by sequestering carbon, while providing substantial co-benefits such as biodiversity conservation.

At kanop, we also think that forests are part of the solution so we help forest managers and project developers scale their operations. We leverage satellite data and state-of-the-art AI models to accurately measure and certify ecosystem services that forests provide.
