Canopy’s Vision is simple: Make Kentucky First in Good Business

Canopy recognizes the changing landscape in business; employees want purpose, consumers are paying attention to who they buy from, healthy communities are good for business, and a healthy landscape is good for business. Our mission is to grow Kentucky businesses to positively impact people, our planet, and our future. Through education, certification, and connection, we help Kentucky businesses participate and succeed within the Good Business movement.

Canopy believes a localized, state-wide approach to building a strong Good Business ecosystem is more likely to succeed in Kentucky than a global or national effort. A Kentucky-wide effort will increase the likelihood of a powerful network of actors, account for localized needs and ways of doing business, and allow for the more manageable goal of engaging Kentucky consumers. This movement will be created by Kentuckians for Kentuckians, make it easier to affect state and local policy, and provide needed social, environmental, and economic improvements.

It’s Time for Kentucky Businesses to do Better.

The Good Business Movement means that it’s time for businesses to be better. Not only do they need to provide services, offer products, and create jobs —they also need to positively engage in the larger social and environmental spheres. The definition of successful business is no longer limited to shareholder profit, but now includes positive social and environmental impact.
