The Local Nonprofit Sustainable Tulsa Argues for "People. Profit. Planet. The Triple Bottom Line."
On this installment of StudioTulsa, we speak with Corey Williams, the executive director of Sustainable Tulsa, a well-regarded local nonprofit that's been encouraging area businesses and individuals to embrace sustainability for nearly a decade. Williams tells us about her organization's "Triple Bottom Line ScoreCard," which has just completed its pilot (or developmental) phase...and which will begin its first full-year term as a Sustainable Tulsa program in the fall. The "triple bottom line," in this case, refers to People, Profit, and Planet. And further, as noted at the Sustainable Tulsa website, area businesses might well choose to "participate in [this] ScoreCard [initiative because it] will add up to savings, employee retention, and branding your company as committed to growing a healthy economy for the Tulsa area, while also protecting our natural resources and improving quality of life."
