By Shane Thornton – an excellent article, which I stumbled onto on eHow, and I really recommend it. It’s very thought-provoking. Everyone knows about Triple Line Reporting, but Quadruple Line?
As an organisation specifically set up to marry good business practice to philanthropic outcomes, this fascinates me, especially as it touches on the personal aspects of peope’s lives. I’d be very interested to hear from anyone who has implemented QBLR, and their experience of it, or anyone who is interested to explore it, but doesnt know where to start. Is this something The Different Company should be helping people to achieve?
Quadruple bottom line reporting uses the idea of triple bottom line reporting as its foundation; it makes businesses accountable and responsible for the economic, social, environmental and spiritual effects of doing business. Although triple bottom line reporting is much more popular, the newer idea of quadruple bottom line reporting and the addition of a spiritual aspect is quickly gaining support.
