About Us

We're leveraging artificial intelligence to measure the environmental benefits provided by nature-based projects around the world. As a starting point, we're focusing on forests.

We imagine tomorrow's world more sustainable by designing precise, independent and affordable solutions.

In short, we like a planet with forests of all sizes.

We are a science-based, solutions-driven team dedicated to solving one of humanity’s greatest challenges: climate change. We believe nature itself can help restore the balance, but the number of healthy ecosystems in tomorrow's world will depend on how well their value is accounted for today. That’s why we’re using cutting-edge AI-powered data to precisely measure their benefits and unlock the potential of nature-based projects. 

Trust and transparency are at the heart of everything we do. Because ecosystem benefits are complex and costly to measure and synthesize, it can be difficult for some of these initiatives to scale. To make sense of it all, we’re committed to building a seamless experience for our customers so they can continue their essential work unhindered by costs or delays. We believe this information should be available to anyone working towards a better future, which is why Kanop is an independent, unbiased platform accessible to projects of all sizes.

Getting measurements right will pave the way to a world where Earth's ecosystems are understood, protected, and integrated sustainably into the economy and society. We’re laser-focused on building a frictionless, impactful measurement platform that is equitable, efficient, and cost-effective for everyone and anyone interested in establishing and scaling nature-based solutions. Climate change is the challenge of our lifetimes, and we are committed to meeting the challenge head-on.
Values are what flora is to forests -  less obvious, yet fundamental

Our Values

Building a platform that we're proud of and you happen to find useful, starts with simple and intentional values

We're doers

We're Collaborative

We're Unbiased

We're Infinitely Curious

We have ambitious goals that require us to act with thoughtful urgency. This means we continuously prioritize our work and hold ourselves to high standards in our commitments to our customers and one another.
The only way we’re going to tackle big problems is by supporting each other. We welcome open and honest feedback. Trust, kindness, and transparency are fundamental. 
Science is objective, and so are we. We’re not interested in gimmicks or tricks that distract us from our mission. We pride ourselves on creating an ethical, data-first company and platform that can be used and trusted by our customers without ulterior motives. 
Using cutting edge technology, we uncover and measure all the benefits nature provides. We’re continuously learning and amazed by the wonders of Earth. While we accept we can’t know everything, this energizes and inspires us to do our part fighting climate change.
