This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).

From the tripple-bottom-line point of view, you would mainly report the externalities of environment and social with the idea that profits would get represented by financial reporting... How do you balance the economic impact with the other impacts?
This reminds me of taxes; the best way to pay no taxes is to make no money.
