“A designer with a passion for everything, a graduate of the Ecole Boulle and Strate College, he approaches design with both creativity and pragmatism.

Founder and Executive Director
Nicole Rycroft is an accomplished environmental activist, anAshoka Fellow, and, unusually, a former elite rower andphysiotherapist. A systems thinker, she confronts the world’s rapid and dangerous destruction of forests with the same holistic, solutions-focused perspective she once used to address the root causes of symptoms in a patient.Over the last two decades, as theFounder and Executive Director of the Canada-based NGOCanopy,Nicolehastransformed the supply chains of some of the world’s biggest fashion, ecommerce, and food and beverage brands as well,as book publishers and printers. Well-known for greening theHarry Potter book seriesinternationally,Nicole’s novel strategy uses her corporate partners’ purchasing power and political clout to incentivize governments, packaging and fabric producers, innovators and the forest industry to change unsustainable practices, save forests and speed the adoption of lower impact Next Gen solutions.In 2013, Canopy launchedCanopyStyle, a campaign to end the negative impact of viscose fabrics on the world’s Ancient and Endangered Forests. At that time, very few companies knew their clothing was connected to forest destruction. The campaign has since grown to over 470 brand partners, including H&M, Zara/Inditex, LVMH, and most recently Walmart. Nicole, and Canopy’swork, have leveraged those commitments to lead to more than half of the global viscose supply chain now ranked as being at low risk of containing fiber from vital forests—a dramatic transition in only a few short years.In 2019, Canopy took thissuccessful fashion sector strategy and beganworking to tackle paper packaging as well –an industry that consumesmore than 3 billion trees annually.Canopy’sPack4Goodcampaign already has more than 300brand partners,and it’sjust getting started.Today, Nicole’s organization maintains partnerships with over 750 companies, helping brands and producers eliminate the need for forest destruction.Recently, Nicole was named the recipient of the 2020 Climate Breakthrough Award.
