How Canopy Works

Get quick insight into how the platform works for investors & developers

  1. Developers list projects

Project developers list their project in any stage of maturity.

  1. Investors place bids

Investors can place a bid on a per tonne basis and adjust all relevant bid metrics.

  1. Developers award allocations

The project developer selects which bid(s) best fits their requirements and allocate volumes according to their preferences.

The process in detail


  • Create an investor’s profile – this will be visible to project developers when you request access to a project

  • Describe what investments you’d be interested in, Project type, Project size, Geographical focus, Contract/investment type, and Investment size

  • You will go through KYC and be required to complete onboarding documentation

  • On completion, you are able to search through the anonymized project database

  • If a project is of interest, you can send a message to the project developer and request full project information

  • When the PD agrees to share the project information you will be able to conduct due diligence, exchange messages, and eventually bid on all relevant bid variables

  • The PD will receive your bid and be able to allocate volumes according their preference

  • You will be able to agree with this allocation, or you can submit another bid to pursue a higher volume allocation

Project Developers

  • Create a Project Developer’s profile – an anonymized version will be visible to Investors

  • Describe what projects you have developed or are looking to develop; Project type, Project size, Geographical focus, Contract/investment type of interest, Investment size of interest

  • You will go through KYC and be required to complete onboarding documentation

  • On completion, you are able to create projects on the platform

  • You will be guided through project quality and risk assessment questionnaires, then can upload relevant project information and documentation to the platform

  • An anonymized version of these projects will be visible to investors on their search portal

  • Investors can request to see full project information

  • You will be able to see the interested investor and can agree to share the project information, exchange messages, and eventually receive bids on your project

  • The platform will calculate, according to your preferences, which bids will give you the most favorable outcome

  • You can also decide to allocate volumes to several investors, and can adjust them in a back-and-forth process

  • Once allocations have been agreed upon, you can close the bidding process and will be taken to the contracting stage with agreed investors
