Vireo is committed to being a best-in-class socially responsible cannabis company. Our CSR efforts include our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council, our pledge to promote diversity in the cannabis industry, our environmentally friendly grow facilities, recyclable packaging, and our community outreach and medical education programs.
As a physician-founded, patient-focused company we strive to make the world a better place. While our priority is to help patients find relief from debilitating medical conditions, we also want to improve the lives of our team members and our communities.
Since our earliest days, diversity has always been a cornerstone of Vireo’s culture. Today, Vireo is one of the most diverse cannabis companies in country. We have over 150 minority employees, representing roughly 35% of our workforce. When expanding diversity metrics to include gender and veterans, over 60% of our employees are female-identifying, minorities, or vets! Read our CEO’s Full statement on diversity and inclusion here
The Vireo Health Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council’s mission is to promote social justice and equality in our company, our industry, and our communities. The DEI Council will engage Vireo’s diverse workforce to better understand the challenges they face and use those learnings to create partnerships and programming that will benefit all people. We strive to create an inclusive vibe!
The brand name, 1937, is a reference to The Marihuana Tax Act of 1937, federal legislation designed to prohibit cannabis use. As Americans across the country work to end cannabis prohibition, the 1937 brand proudly stands for social justice and equality for all. More than a date, our name is a reminder to keep growing forward. Join our movement to elevate the cannabis experience, and the conversation.
Vireo is proud to grow and process our cannabis in state-of-the-art environmentally friendly greenhouses which use renewable energy, compost, and run recycling programs.
