  • Hemp Industry Association Submits Climate Action Plan To Biden Admin

The National Hemp Association (NHA) has submitted their "Action Plan" to the White House, USDA, and the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture detailing how hemp can be incorporated into the major climate initiatives identified by the Biden Administration.

Hemp, which had been absent in the American landscape for more than 85 years, is now seen as one of the most promising sustainable commodity crops; it not only consumes three times more CO2 than any other crop on the planet, it is used in a multitude of products including lightweight auto components, bio-plastics, housing and commercial buildings, fuel cells for electric vehicles, paper, textiles, food, cosmetics and nutraceuticals. As the world turns to using more plant-based products, hemp can save the family farm and mitigate climate change to improve the condition of humankind.

The Plan addresses key areas of the Biden-Harris Climate Change Policy in which hemp can play a major role, including:

  • Infrastructure
  • Auto Industry
  • Transit
  • Power Sector
  • Buildings
  • Housing
  • Agriculture and Conservation
  • Environmental Justice
