Just a few years ago, sustainability was a PROFITS, planet and people movement focused on financial ROI and tangible, calculable bottom-line benefits. But an evolution has taken place. Businesses are now starting to recognize that green is multidimensional. It isn’t just a coupling of a reduced carbon footprint and ROI, it is about seeing you and your business from a global perspective, understanding impact and recognizing people as an intricate part of the shift toward sustainability.
Currently there are three separate indicators that are used to determine the sustainability of a company: Key Financial Performance Indicators (KPI’s), Environmental Performance Indicators (EPI’s) and finally, Social Performance Indicators (SPI’s). (Profits, planet and people, respectively.)
