Ashland LLC, a global specialty chemicals company headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, has
been a long-time supporter of Professor Neil Drobny's (ISSP Professional Development Committee member) undergraduate sustainable business classes at Ohio State University. Most recently, Ashland donated an ISSP Sustainability Associate Study Guide to the University Library so it may be available to any student who plans to take the exam. Drobny, who offers extra credit to students who take and pass the exam, says he learned early in his career in engineering that "professional certification is an important way to differentiate oneself in today's competitive job market." Accordingly, his courses include heavy doses of professional development as well as academic assignments.
Nicole Voss, Director of Sustainability and Environmental at Ashland, remarked, "It is our honor to be in a position to provide this valuable tool."
