Written by Shared Content

Denver, CO —The Marijuana Industry Group and the Cannabis Certification Council are excited to partner to produce a new series of events to inform and educate cannabis industry leaders and business owners. In each installation of the Sustainability Best Practices Deep Dive series, Colorado cannabis companies will learn how to incorporate sustainable best practices in an economically viable way.

“Sustainability is a top priority in the industry,” said Truman Bradley, Executive Director of the Marijuana Industry Group. “We know that our use of natural resources will have a long-lasting effect on our environment, and we are determined to be good stewards. Colorado cannabis companies are continuing to lead this industry in implementing sustainable business practices and these deep dives are a chance to bring the best practitioners together.”

“Partnering with the Marijuana Industry Group to educate the Colorado industry on sustainability is a testament to their leadership and the forward-looking nature of the cannabis industry, especially in Colorado” said Ben Gelt, board chair of The Council. “We have established a highly replicable and scalable model with this partnership and are thrilled that the Colorado cannabis industry continues to lead the way in sustainability.”

“Our Cannabis Cabinet is making sustainability in the industry one of our main Cabinet priorities,” said Jared Polis, Governor of Colorado. “It’s incumbent on cannabis industry leadership to demonstrate proactivity on sustainable operations and we appreciate the Cannabis Certification Council and the Marijuana Industry Group coming together to produce a series in support of our goals. We continue to see excitement around our Environmental Leadership Program at CDPHE and hope to see dozens of applications from licensees this year.”
