Abstract

As our global economy becomes more complex and demand for natural resources grows, sustainability will become as important a business discipline as quality and efficiency are today. This presentation describes the Triple Bottom Line — financial, environmental, and social benefits — and how companies work with their suppliers to jointly develop sustainable business practices, as well as products and services, which are commercially viable, preserve our environmental resources and look after our workforce and communities.
