THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE
In recent years business sustainability has crystallized into three clear areas, all of which should form part of the regular reporting process:
Economic – being able to make a profit and secure an organisations future - you can’t improve the system if you are bankrupt Social – every organisation is part of a community and has members of that community working in its midst. So cutting-edge companies like PMP increasingly promote and monitor positive connections with that community. Environmental – serious players look at their resource and energy use across all of their activities, as well as targeting specific issues like waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
