Carbon Footprints

Hello @growopowners ! Thinking about sustainability issues in indoor grows and I’m wondering if any of you have actively sought to reduce your carbon footprint of your operation. Can you share what you’ve done? What have the results been?


We wrote a guest blog for Ed Rosenthal’s group earlier this year that touched on the sustainability differences between light dep greenhouses, indoor, and outdoor cultivation. New Frontier Data also published a great report regarding energy usage and implications for different cannabis cultivation methods (referenced in the blog post).

Curious to see people’s responses, especially indoor growers. The energy usage and labor costs are sky high compared to other methods, even with top-of-the-line environmental controls.

Here is a link to eh guest blog for anyone who is interested:
