Sustainably Measuring Company Performance with ‘The Triple Bottom Line’ author Andrew Savitz

December 12, 2009

John and Mike talk sustainable business practices with Andrew Savitz, founder of sustainability consultancy Sustainable Business Strategies and author of The Triple Bottom Line. Savitz outlines his “triple threat” of sustainability focus — people, planet and profits — and how he uses this to measure companies’ performance not only economically, but also sustainably. In this discussion, Savitz outlines specific business practices that have worked, and where we go from here to continue greening our world. The “bottom line” here: Savitz’s main goal is to increase awareness of the key social and environmental issues major corporations face. If they can overcome these concerns in today’s world, economic prosperity will follow.
