Sustainability - Our Pledge

At our company, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment.

As a large producer of products from cannabis and industrial hemp, we are constantly striving to be CO2-neutral. We use a large amount of renewable energy from water and solar, replenish the soil without fertilizer, use highly effective LEDs over HPS lamps, and packaging made from ROHS-produced wood, paper from recycled paper etc.

In addition, we have been CO2-negative for years. This means that we are actually removing more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than we are emitting. As a result, we are making a positive contribution to the fight against climate change.

Highest standard of certifications and accreditations

Here at our company, we pride ourselves on having the highest standard of certifications and accreditations. We have been documenting, improving and certifying our production processes by GMP and ISO 22716 since 2018, and we are now finalizing ISO 9001:2015. Additionally, our products are certified organic and vegan.

Anyone can claim that their products are organic or vegan, but unfortunately, many choose to do so without any certification or accreditation.

We believe that our customers deserve the best of the best, which is why we go the extra mile to ensure that our products meet the highest standards. When you choose our company, you can rest assured knowing that you're getting the best possible product.

We are very proud of our achievements to date. It takes time, patience, manpower and requires substantial financial investment in product development, quality improvement, and certifications via external consultants.

However, we can do better and should do anything possible to reduce our footprint on the Planet to minimize climate change and the negative impacts on the fragile ecosystem. For example, we could use more recycled materials in our products, source energy from renewable sources, or offset our carbon emissions.

We believe that it is our responsibility to minimize our impact on the environment, and we are committed to doing so. In fact, we have already made significant progress in recent years, thanks in part to the efforts of our employees. We will continue to work hard to reduce our environmental impact and be a force for good in the world.

Our pledge

Sustainability is a top priority at our company.

We recognize that the products we sell have a significant impact on the environment, and we are committed to making changes that will reduce that impact.

We have set a goal of implementing sustainable product labels and packaging for all of our products by the end of 2021. This means switching to eco-friendly materials for our labels and packaging, and ensuring that all of our products meet medical-grade quality standards.

We believe that this pledge is an important step in our journey towards becoming a more sustainable company, and we are committed to seeing it through.

Thank you for your support as we work to make this important change.

Before the end of 2022, we promise to implement the following changes:

Sustainable product labels

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we will be redesigning all product labels to be printed on eco-friendly materials.

In addition, we will be increasing the use of local language variations on our labels, to better serve our customers around the world. This includes Spanish, Portuguese and Norwegian. All labels will also meet medical-grade quality standards.

This redesign is part of our larger commitment to sustainability and to providing our customers with the best possible products.

Sustainable packaging

We will be redesigning and reprinting all product packaging and inserts for all products produced by ROHS-wood only.

This will enable us to reduce our use of paper and plastic, and will help us to meet our goal of reducing our environmental impact by 50% by 2025.

We will be working with our suppliers to ensure that the new packaging is made from recycled materials, and that it can be easily recycled or reused.

We appreciate your patience as we make this transition, and we look forward to future opportunities to reduce our impact on the planet. 

Sustainable product containers

It's time to say goodbye to those pesky plastic containers and make the switch to glass or aluminium.

Not only is it more aesthetically pleasing, but it's also better for the environment. Here at our company, we are committed to following the organic COSMOS standard, which requires the use of glass or aluminium containers instead of plastic.

Plastic takes centuries to decompose, while glass and aluminium can be recycled over and over again. Making the switch to eco-friendly packaging is just one small way that we can help make a big difference for the planet. Plus, our customers can feel good knowing that they are supporting a sustainable business.

So let's make the switch and start making a positive impact on the environment.

Sustainable product protection

In an effort to be more sustainable, we have decided to stop using plastic lids for our containers. Instead, we will be using glass or aluminium covers that can be reused.

We will also be using shrink-plastic protective sleeves for our products. These sleeves will be made from biodegradable material, so they will not contribute to pollution.

We hope that these changes will help to reduce the amount of plastic waste that is produced each year.

We will keep you updated

At this time, we would like to assure you that we are still working hard on our plans.

We have made significant progress and we are confident that we will be able to keep our promise to you. We understand your frustration and we assure you that we are doing everything in our power to move forward as soon as possible.

As soon as we have more information, we will update you. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
