Our services

Strategic advisory

We help companies from a wide range of industries adopt hemp in their existing production or supply chains to lower their carbon footprint.

Research and Development

We assess hemp’s environmental benefits and run research projects on CO2 sequestration and soil recultivation.

Innovation

We provide support to designers, architects, research organizations and universities on material and product development based on hemp.

Our Pillars

We look at industrial hemp through a lens of its environmental added value and the business potential it represents. This view is divided into three foundational pillars, essentially the most valuable aspects that a sustainable industrial crop, such as hemp, can offer for the environment, economy and ultimately- the climate.

Fundraising on projects

Help us advance our work by donating on a specific project.

In 2021, we stepped away from a membership-based model and set up a more transparent donation model based on voluntary contributions toward specific projects. You can choose to either contribute to upcoming or ongoing projects. We believe this to be a more impactful option, as it allows us to dedicate more of our time toward getting the actual work done. Take a look at the options below, read about our projects and choose your preferred amount to donate.
