Embracing Our Sustainable Future Together

As we transition the mission of the Iowa Sustainable Business Forum (ISBF) to a new era under the Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS), we honor the legacy and contributions of ISBF and its members through the years. Your dedication to sustainable practices has paved the way for continuous improvement and a positive impact on people, the planet, and profits.

Your Journey Continues with CIRAS

We invite all former ISBF members to join us at CIRAS and Iowa Lean Consortium (ILC) events where your journey toward excellence in sustainability can continue. As outlined in an email sent by Megan Baker on April 15, 2024, ISBF members with dues paid through June 30, 2024, will enjoy member rates for ILC events until December 31, 2025, and access to the ISBF member library through CIRAS. ISBF members, please see the email you received from Tracy Schuster in May to find the link to the ISBF on-demand library (The link to the library has been removed from the link on this page – see original email for a link to the library or contact us to request link)

Lean and Sustainability Event

Save the date for a special event on August 28 that bridges Lean and Sustainability, showcasing how these paradigms align to increase efficiency, reduce waste, and foster continual improvement. This event is a testament to our belief, as expressed by Tracy Schuster that Lean and sustainability are interconnected in driving organizational excellence. A sustainability and supply chain webinar is being planned for December of 2024. Watch our events page for details.
