Cannabis Sustainability Symposium Online Event
October 5 - October 9
About this Event
This five-year running event connects industry executives, advocates, scientists, and thinkers to envision a sustainable future for the cannabis industry – and provide decision-makers with the tools they need to make positive changes today.
Every day, 5-8 speakers, panels, and keynotes will cover a holistic view of sustainability in cannabis. Content will include experts presenting on:
Energy Efficiency, Social Equity, Sustainable Packaging, Carbon Sequestration, Corporate Social Responsibility, Water Conservation, Medical Benefits, Waste Reduction, Emerging Technologies, Efficiencies in Supply Chains, Impact Assessments
Our nationally recognized, five-year running events bring together top experts from across the country to present the industry’s critical environmental challenges and best management practices, including energy efficiency, water management, and waste. We help educate attendees on the latest tools, techniques, and technologies for efficient and safe cannabis production.
The Symposium is also an opportunity for networking and developing new collaborative opportunities to further sustainability initiatives in 2020 and beyond.
The CCC is a nonprofit standard holding body focused on providing consumer and industry education, transparency, and choice in the cannabis industry. Through our #Whatsinmyweed campaign and the Cannabis Sustainability Symposium, the Council has become a leading advocate for clean, ethical, and sustainable business practices in the cannabis industry.
The Ethical Cannabis Alliance, founded in Portland, Oregon, and the Organic Cannabis Association based in Denver, Colorado, had similar missions. Their work was similar, and through collaboration, the two nonprofits believed in attaining their mission by unifying and educating. The ECA and OCA believe they will reach a larger audience and bring consistency to the industry on a national basis through their merger. The national program, the Cannabis Certification Council (CCC), is now pursuing to build a robust, transparent, and conflict-free standard holding body.
The groups also believe that the “organic” and fair labor industry standards (in the absence of the Federal Government’s involvement) for cannabis must be set and maintained by a nonprofit to avoid conflicts of interest. Together, the ECA and OCA have merged into the Cannabis Certification Council to establish a reliable national standard that consumers can recognize and trust.
