Triple Bottom Line

Understanding People, Planet & Profit for Responsible Business

The Triple Bottom Line – the core of what we cover here at TriplePundit considers the social, environmental and financial performance of an organization. At it’s core, triple bottom line thinking ties the social and environmental impact of an organization’s activities to its economic performance.

Although all of TriplePundit’s articles attempt to address the systemic thinking that underlines the triple bottom line, the articles on this page have been chosen specifically for their more direct approach to the issue.
