We have taken some modest first steps to build a knowledge base to test the power of interacting elements of the Triple Bottom Line. Much original research by private think-tanks and on university campuses is contributing to parts of this quest. But we feel that the work of investors, entrepreneurs, community members and government officials also contains practical, experience-based information that must be included in our collective wisdom.

 

We have been working to record the information arising out of several conferences for the past two years, including Social Capital Markets conferences.

 

We invite you to download the PDFs to review these session summaries.
