Working Groups

The Cannabis Impact Group

The KanaboStream team and CMTREX, in collaboration with Roshem Impact, has launched the Cannabis Impact Group as a knowledge center, policy development group, and advisory firm. The Cannabis Impact team develops dynamic and compelling reports, videos, educational material and implements sustainable development programs.

The Cannabis Impact Group explores the impact of cannabis and hemp with the intention of realizing increased positive outcomes for businesses and their employees, their supply chains, communities, customers and the planet’s natural ecosystems.

Within the KanaboStream Community, the Group’s team directly engages with and lead our Working Groups, in order to actively share information and support our members.

Cannabis Impact Working Groups at KanaboStream

This group is for members to discuss how the KanaboStream platform is influencing their cannabis trading initiatives, work and professional development, along with specific outcomes they are working towards realizing. This is a space to discuss specific SDG targets and indicators, alongside impact outcomes, and the tools and resources members need to be able to realize their purpose-driven goals. The KanaboStream team invites members to provide feedback on how the network can be improved, and provide suggestions on specific resources, tools and courses that can be added to the platform to support them in realizing their ideal outcomes. This is a space for members to add suggestions related to how KanaboStream can support their business and professional development, including through proposals for new courses, groups, forums and tools.

In 2020, the concept of a regenerative economy has gone mainstream. Public awareness has changed since the architect of Regenerative Economics, John Fullerton, first conceived the concept in his 2015 booklet, “Regenerative Capitalism: How Universal Patterns and Principles Will Shape the New Economy”. In recent times, regenerative economic development, alongside the creation of circular product cycles, has proven to be the most promising way forward for our global economy. Join us as we discuss circular and regenerative economic principles in practice.
The 2030 Agenda for sustainable development is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible, and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: those that are economic, social and environmental. Many countries are aligning their national policies and institutions behind the Sustainable Development Goals to improve people’s lives. Businesses are taking action to invest in new technologies, opening up new markets, and building the sustainable and inclusive economy of the 21st century. In this group, members join forces to ensure their business and professional activities contribute to the realization of the SDGs, and share practical solutions and experiences with one another.
Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. This is a community of leaders, driving a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The B Corporation Working Group serves to provide our members with an opportunity to exchange information, experiences, Impact Business Models and programs they have developed as part of their interest in the B Corporation certification process.

On our platform, we bring together a diverse range of industry stakeholders and provide introductory information about policies and practices that facilitate results across our working groups.

What’s our ideal outcome?
