June newsletter highlights
We just sent out the June 2019 ASI News! Some highlights from this month’s issue:
- ASI Certifications at 18 months of implementation
A highlight of the ASI AGM Week conference earlier this month were the presentations from ten implementing companies about their ASI Certification journey. The ten companies were examples of ASI’s diversity of membership across geographies and supply chain activities. So at 18 months since our launch, how is the overall breadth of ASI implementation developing?
