Galvanizing leaders to make cannabis the most sustainable industry on the planet.

Tens of thousands of industrial scale cannabis production facilities will be built over the next few years. How they are designed, constructed and maintained will impact not only our natural resources, but also public perception of the industry.

At the Resource Innovation Institute, we collaborate with the cannabis industry, the private marketplace and
the public sector to drive market-based solutions that promote resource efficiency.

Our objective is to transform the cannabis market today toward carbon-free and water-wise production.
