Triple Bottom Line Doesn’t Cut It Today

The creator of the concept of the Triple Bottom Line – People, Profit, Planet – as measuring the true value of an organization, says that more is needed now. John Elkington says, we now need to be “working toward a triple helix for value creation, a genetic code for tomorrow’s capitalism, spurring the regeneration of our economies, societies, and biosphere.”

The Federal Trade Commission issued a final report stating that Volkswagen paid $9.5 billion to redress it’s diesel engine debacle. It also said that 86% of U.S. customers affected choose to sell back their vehicles or end their leases with the company. That is a high price to pay for poor asset management.
