Global Canopy

Request for proposals – Database Integration Project

Apply by Wednesday 1 February

Global Canopy is looking for a consultancy that will work with us on the second phase of development of our Forest IQ database. This groundbreaking project brings together a number of leading environmental organisations, and the best available data on corporate performance on deforestation, to help financial institutions understand their exposure and move rapidly towards deforestation-free portfolios.

With our partners we have developed a common database on corporate performance on deforestation, conversion and human rights abuses aligned with industry standard guidance and corporate best practice outlined by the Accountability Framework. This database is designed to provide the standardised data and metrics on key companies needed by the finance sector to move towards deforestation-free portfolios. The project works closely with representatives from key financial institutions to ensure that it is effectively designed to support financial decision-making.

The successful organisation will bring technical expertise to successfully transition the database, ETLs and existing processes from a graph to Global Canopy’s relational database, while still meeting user needs to ensure the success and ultimate impact of the project.

Please read all of the attached documents for background on the project and instructions for submission. If you have any queries, please email Sarah Draper using
