What is our "Triple Bottom Line"

Local governments are increasingly paying attention to other elements of community development work in order to build healthy communities, realizing that they cannot foster a strong economy in isolation from social and environmental factors.

One approach to development that addresses these issues is the “triple bottom line”, a method that integrates three dimensions

of performance: social, environmental, and financial.

Under the triple bottom line approach, growth and development should consider not only economic factors, but also social and environmental impacts of any initiative
