ESG performance and cannabis
BY ,  |  

The link between positive environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance and economic growth is not new. However, the heightened focus by market participants on value creation through sustainability is new and being driven in part by global trends related to stakeholder ESG awareness and the role of business in society. [ESG and sustainability are used interchangeably throughout this paper.]

With the realities of climate change looming large and an increased focus on human rights, cyber security, technology and the role of business in society, ESG is garnering increased global attention, especially in emerging industries, and the cannabis industry is no exception.

Investor and consumer interest, as well as enhanced legislative requirements are all significant drivers in ESG development.

This paper explains ESG fundamentals and how implementation of sustainability strategies can help companies in the cannabis industry differentiate themselves and set the groundwork for future success in a changing business environment.
