Canopy Capital "was established in 2007 to drive capital to the rainforest canopy.
"Canopy Capital has created an investment template for first-movers in an emerging market for Ecosystem Services. These include rainfall generation, moderation of extreme weather, carbon storage and biodiversity maintenance." 
"In March 2008, Canopy Capital entered into a partnership with the Iwokrama International Centre (IIC)in Guyana to measure and place a financial value on the Ecosystem Services (ESS) of Iwokrama’s tropical forest. This is the first ever deal to put a market value on the services provided by a rainforest, which include rainfall production, water storage, and weather moderation – utilities with global significance which are vanishing as forests fall."
