Webinar Series

SHP and ABC are hosting a series of online conversations on key issues around sustainability and the botanical industry with leaders in the botanical community. After the first webinar, these will typically be scheduled on the first and third Thursday of each month at 2 pm. We have selected this time as a way to provide a virtual brown bag lunch series.


Certifications as a Path to Sustainability? With Jan Von Enden, Martin Bauer Group; Kevin Casey, Banyan Botanicals; Yuca Waarts, Wageningen University

This webinar will focus on the social and economic dimensions of growing and harvesting botanical raw materials for the global market. We will talk about economic inequities in the industry, especially for producers; the role of certifications (both B Corps and those specific to products/sourcing) to address those inequities; and the limitations and risks of those certifications.
