    Consumer-goods manufacturers have gained more transparency into their suppliers’ sustainability performance, according to The Sustainability Insight System (THESIS) Index. However, many challenges remain.

Those four letters after your name carry a lot of weight in the global supply management field because ISM certification has been respected as the foundational benchmark by the profession for nearly 40 years.
