As the cannabis industry continues to grow, so does its environmental impact. This fast-growing and highly regulated industry (at the state level) is poised to lead on evolving business challenges, including the adoption of environmentally sound business practices that demonstrate to the broader agriculture sector that comprehensive environmental sustainability is achievable. But, challenges remain and the stakes are ever-increasing.
Register today to listen to Mike and Michelle as they’re joined by special guests to discuss the future of sustainability in the cannabis industry. We’ll look at the intersection of the current environmental footprint of the cannabis industry, existing sustainability solutions (packaging, regenerative farming, renewable energy), political and economic issues limiting adoption of these practices by operators, and lay out strategies to remove those barriers. We’ll also be talking extensively about NCIA’s 2020 white paper (Read Now: https://bit.ly/3uDogfa) on environmental sustainability, so be sure to take a look!
