The Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia is excited to introduce new educational programming, the Triple Bottom Line Series (TBL). This three-part series will examine what it takes to be a triple bottom line business and explore the economic, social, and environmental impacts generated by these businesses.
Part one of three in the series will explore how businesses are making economic sense of incorporating TBL principles. For instance, hear from Nicole Marquis, owner of HipCityVeg about her experience running an emerging TBL business, including: How HipCityVeg delivers on the Triple Bottom Line, operates as a TBL business, and impacts the surrounding community.
In addition to Nicole’s opening remarks, the event will incorporate breakout sessions on a variety of topics pertaining to the financial concerns of TBL businesses.
1. Explore the practical aspects of making your business more socially and environmentally responsible. Hardik Savalia of BLab will engage with attendees on the following topics: What is the triple bottom line? How can your business adopt TBL practices? Why should your business be involved in this broad and growing movement?
2. Meet Investors’ Circle (IC), a network of angel investors who seek financial, social and environmental returns on their investments. Hear from IC on the type of investments they seek, and find out whether your business fits the bill!
3. Learn about when and how to complete a business valuation in a workshop led by Michael Cunningham of Hempstead & Co. LLC. Topics will include: When to think about selling your business, attracting new investments, and splitting with a business partner.
4. Are your investments sustainable? Are they aligned with your personal values and your vision for your business or the world? Learn what “sustainable investing” means and how you can create triple bottom line value through your investment portfolio for your business, your personal assets, and for your employees!
