Triple Bottom Line Business Idea Contest
DESIGNED TO EXPAND YOUR VIEW OF BUSINESS
The Triple Bottom Line Contest will show you how businesses can move from a single bottom line—profit; to a triple bottom line based on: People, Planet and Profits.
PEOPLE—Building a better community through positively impacting the people who interact with the business.
PLANET—Improving the environment through a healthy and responsible use of resources.
PROFIT—Improve profits to grow the business and enrich the lives of its employees.
At Kuyper we want to inspire students to consider a future using business skills to make the world a better place. Through the Triple Bottom Line perspective of business, students will learn how business can improve their community, their state, the country, and even the world.
