Triple Bottom Line Sustainability Framework

John Elkington began to measure sustainability during the mid-1990s by encompassing a new framework to measure performance. This accounting framework called the triple bottom line (TBL), went beyond the traditional categories of profit, return on investment, and shareholder value to include environmental and social dimensions.
