The political, regulatory and health dimensions of a legal cannabis sector have received huge attention. But there has been remarkably little done on what a sustainable cannabis sector should look like. I will be joined by two prominent entrepreneurs, investors and commentators to discuss the key sustainability issues facing the sector: • What would a responsible cannabis company and sector look like? • What would be the right mix of certification, regulation and best practice to achieve that? • What can we learn from other sectors about the marketing, supply, cultivation and formulation of cannabis products? • What should investors look for when trying to work out whether they are investing in responsible companies. I will chair a discussion between Toby Shillito - formerly a Director at Business in the Community and a longstanding entrepreneur and investor in cannabis, and Gavin Sathianathan, CEO of Alta Flora, and a non-exec director of Oxford Cannabinoid Technologies, and George McBride, Partner at Hanway Associates, a global cannabis consultancy
