      “THESIS is instrumental in helping Georgia-Pacific communicate with our retail customers. Answering several different assessments at a time is a drain on our time and resources. THESIS not only makes it easy for us to answer one assessment for multiple retail customers, but the consistency across the questions asked year-to-year also helps us measure our progress.”

      Todd Wingfield

      Sustainability Director, Georgia-Pacific
