Empowering cannabis growers to cultivate a resource efficient industry
Founded in early 2016 in Portland, Oregon, by leaders in energy and climate policy, corporate sustainability, green building and utility conservation who saw cannabis as an unprecedented opportunity for market transformation toward resource efficiency.
We partner with growers, cannabis trade associations, cannabis cup competitions, utilities, governments, manufacturers and other stakeholders to aggregate data, create venues for the exchange of best practices and establish standards to advance resource efficiency.
We help stakeholders, governments and utilities make sense of the resource impacts of cannabis, its integration into communities, and how to productively solve real-time, resource-related market challenges.
