Join CMA and Cannabis Certification Council Co-Founder Ben Gelt at 12:00pm MT on August 3.

Sustainability can be a daunting subject, it’s broad and hard to define – and consumers can’t get enough of it. This panel will discuss the dos and don’ts of marketing sustainability as part of your brand.

  • Start small (you don’t need to single-handedly save the world and don’t let perfect be the enemy of good)
  • Know what you’re doing well (strengths)
  • Know what you’re not doing well (weaknesses)
  • No detail is too small (knowing your operation will make you a better marketer and you never know what detail consumers may seize on)
