Free Webinar: Botanical Supply Sustainability in the time of COVID Online

A conversation with Loren Israelsen, President, United Natural Products Alliance; Angela McElwee, President and CEO of Gaia Herbs; and Ajay Patel, Founder, and CEO of Verdure Sciences. The climate emergency and the decline of biodiversity make it abundantly clear that business, as usual, is no longer enough. The disruptions caused by COVID-19, challenging as they are, offer an opportunity to address these underlying environmental and ethical issues. In this conversation, industry leaders will discuss the particular challenges the botanical industry is facing in terms of supply and sourcing and specific steps companies can take to ensure sustainability practices are not compromised during this time.

As part of the Sustainable Herbs Program’s outreach for the SHP Sustainability and Regenerative Practices Toolkit, we are hosting a series of conversations on key issues around sustainability and the botanical industry with leaders in the botanical industry. We are happy to announce the first of these webinars.
