We're excited to be heading to the Timberframers Guild annual conference for the first time this year. Kate will be moderating a roundtable discussion on Creating Triple Bottom Line Businesses with Chad Mathrani from Vermont Natural Homes, Brad Morse from Uncarved Block, and Jonathan Orpin from Pioneer Millworks and New Energy Works.
Our session focuses on how we can use our businesses to create the world we wish for – to make better lives for our families and our employees, enhance our communities, respond to the urgency of climate change, and achieve financial stability. We will bring together business owners who are using a Triple Bottom Line approach to move beyond simply measuring economic profitability by also looking at how our businesses impact people and the planet. We'll explore questions like: What metrics are we using to measure our triple bottom line? What are the potential risks and benefits to a triple bottom line approach? What does a triple bottom line business look like in practice? A triple bottom line approach can improve the health and well being of our employees, our business and the environment. It can also bolster profits through employee engagement and productivity, and improve our standing in the local community.
It's not too late to join us this weekend at the conference:
