8 Ways that your company can triple bottom line

Posted by Jeff Golfman on Feb 27, 2019

Most businesses have one goal. To maximize profits. In fact, legally speaking the board of directors, the officers and management have a legal fiduciary duty to make decisions that maximize the profit bottom line. 

 

 This singularity of purpose often comes at the expense of the people involved and to mother nature as well. Often short-term decisions are rewarded and long term are penalized.

Research has shown that we do not have to sacrifice and choose between short term gains, profits and the people involved. There are numerous examples of socially and ecologically responsible businesses that have been able to thrive on all fronts in a win-win-win outcome.  

In fact, recent reports have shown that businesses that have a social mission and act on a triple bottom line mission out perform the competition. Harvard Business Schoolfound that “High-sustainability companies significantly outperform their counterparts… both in terms of stock market and financial performance”.

 

The triple bottom line goal is to balance these priorities in synchronicity: People, Planet and Profit.
