LivWell Enlightened Health Achieves Silver Partner Status in Colorado's Environmental Leadership Program

The designation, awarded by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, signifies LivWell’s commitment to environmental stewardship.

DENVER, COLORADO (October 7, 2020) — LivWell Enlightened Health, a multi-state cannabis cultivation and retail leader, recently became the first marijuana business to be named a Silver Partner in the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s Environmental Leadership Program (ELP). The ELP requires its Colorado business members to implement ongoing sustainability practices and initiatives beyond governmental, statutory, or regulatory requirements.

A business must have a proven track record of adhering to environmental best practices to qualify for membership in the ELP in conjunction with a commitment to yearly reporting on sustainability efforts moving forward. In addition, a company that achieves admission into the program must show that it has not experienced any compliance or legal issues related to sustainability.

“As an organization, LivWell has always been focused on sustainability and the impact we make on our environment,” said John Lord, CEO at LivWell Enlightened Health. “This designation takes that commitment a step further. The ELP not only holds us accountable for making continuous strides in our sustainability efforts, but also enables us to connect with other businesses and state leaders who value sustainability the way that we do.”

Among LivWell’s successful sustainability efforts include saving 50,000-kilowatt hours of energy by retrofitting standard lighting with LED bulbs and improving cultivation practices to reduce pesticide use by over 99%.

LivWell will continue its commitment to sustainability, working toward achieving Gold Partner status. To meet the requirements of this status, a business must have implemented a fully-functional Environmental Management System (EMS), in which a business has a set procedure for adhering to environmental protocols. Silver Partners, like LivWell, must demonstrate a plan for implementation of an EMS by the end of year one, and they have up to three years to implement an EMS, at which point the business can apply to become a Gold Partner. LivWell expects to achieve Gold Partner status by the end of 2021.
