The cannabis industry and its ancillaries are in a unique position to become sustainable leaders. At Cannabis & Tech Today, our goal is to shine a light on those companies going above and beyond to be stewards of the environment, updating old technology and innovating new in order to make the industry run more efficiently. From sustainable growing practices to eco-friendly packaging, there are companies perfecting every step of the cannabis life cycle.
We are very excited to announce the winners of the Cannabis & Tech Today Sustainable Leadership Awards, recognizing the eco-conscious leaders of this burgeoning cannabis industry. In partnership with STM Canna and CRATIV Packaging, we chose 6 winners across 6 categories: Energy, Water, Packaging, Innovation, Event, Stewardship.
