Getting to the Bottom of “Triple Bottom Line”*

...In Press, Business Ethics Quarterly Getting to the Bottom of “Triple Bottom Line”* by Wayne Norman and Chris MacDonald March 2003 Abstract: In this paper, we examine critically the notion of “Triple Bottom Line” accounting. We begin by asking just what it is that supporters of the Triple Bottom line idea advocate, and attempt to distil specific, assessable claims from the vague, diverse, and sometimes contradictory uses of the Triple Bottom Line rhetoric. We then use these claims as a basis upon which to argue (a) that what is sound about the idea of a Triple Bottom Line is not novel, and (b) that what is novel about the idea is not sound. We argue on both conceptual and practical grounds that the Triple Bottom Line is an unhelpful addition to current discussions of corporate social responsibility. Finally, we argue that the Triple Bottom Line paradigm cannot be rescued simply by attenuating its claims: the rhetoric is badly misleading, and may in fact provide a smokescreen behind which firms can avoid truly effective social and environmental reporting and performance. Introduction The notion of “Triple Bottom Line” (3BL) accounting has become increasingly fashionable in management, consulting, investing, and NGO circles over the last few years. The idea behind the 3BL paradigm is that a corporation’s ultimate success or health can and should be measured not just by the traditional financial bottom line, but also by its social/ethical and environmental performance...

Play

...Play is a freely chosen and personally directed behaviour that actively engages children. It is very important that early years practitioners have a good grasp on this subject as the developmental usefulness of play for a child is extremely significant. For children, play provides them with the necessary skills to develop: socially, emotionally, physically and creatively. Bruce (2004) explores the fact that play is a valuable tool for children to discover their environment and to learn about why things happen using all of their senses both indoors and outdoors. The hypothesis that will be discussed throughout this essay is how play is important in early development and learning and how it serves both the child’s individual needs and the future society in which they will live in. This will be discussed and explored through reference to historical play pioneers, legislation, policy and guidance and theoretical knowledge on the social, cultural and intellectual perspectives on play. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework (2008), created under the Childcare Act (2006), gives all practitioners across England guidance on a play based approach to learning. Therefore, assuming children do learn by play, practitioners and professionals must deliver planned, purposeful play which has a balance between adult-led and child-initiated activities, as stated by QCA (2007). There should be a wide variety of different play methods that allows them to represent their own......

Experiences of Iso 9000 with Small Firms in Building Services

...Experiences of ISO 9000 with small firms in building services M.A. Atherton and P. Austin The authors M.A. Atherton is based at the School of Engineering Systems and Design, South Bank University, London, UK. P. Austin is with Austin Hall Management Consultants Ltd, Woking, UK. Introduction Small firms In the context of quality systems a small firm has been defined[1] as one run by a single manager who is the owner, or in close touch with the owner, and who knows the proce- dures which everyone in the firm should be following. Recognizing that definitions vary, more than 85 per cent of UK firms are classi- fied by Manchester Business School[2] as small. There is usually little formal manage- ment structure in a small firm, the manager effectively acts as a quality manager by fre- quently checking all the firm’s activities and so assurance of quality depends more on staff competence than documentation. Small firms often feel that they provide a better quality service than many larger firms which have the standard; thus if the client insists on the stan- dard they risk losing a good service. However, small firms often do not fully appreciate that as they grow these hands-on management Abstract Describes an approach for overcoming some of the barriers to achieving ISO 9000 faced by small firms in the building services sector. Draws on the experiences of several firms to illustrate the importance of partnerships in overcoming......

Building a Brand

...DEVELOPING MARKETING STRATEGIES AND PLANS | CHAPTER 2 57 Marketing Excellence >>Cisco Cisco Systems is the worldwide leading supplier of networking equipment for the Internet. The company sells hardware (routers and switches), software, and services that make most of the Internet work. Cisco was founded in 1984 by a husband and wife team who worked in the computer operations department at Stanford University. They named the company cisco—with a lowercase c, short for San Francisco, and developed a logo that resembled the Golden Gate Bridge, which they frequently traveled. Cisco went public in 1990 and the two founders left the company shortly thereafter, due to conflicting interests with the new president and CEO. Over the next decade, the company grew exponentially, led by newproduct launches such as patented routers, switches, platforms, and modems—which significantly contributed to the backbone of the Internet. Cisco opened its first international offices in London and France in 1991 and has opened a number of new international offices since then. During the 1990s, Cisco acquired and successfully integrated 49 companies into its core business. As a result, the company’s market capitalization grew faster than for any company in history—from $1 billion to $300 billion between 1991 and 1999. In March 2000, Cisco became the most valuable company in the world, with market capitalization peaking at $582 billion or $82 per share. By the end of the......

Africa's Triple Heritage

...for Africa, there are a few conclusions that students can soundly arrive at. As far back as scholars have researched, a range of different cultures have come into contact with Africa including European and Islamic cultures. A lot of the interaction has been forced upon the continent, and has been accompanied by violence, physical and otherwise. However, it is clear that the different cultures of people who have passed through and continue to reside on the continent has had effects, both positive and negative, on various aspects of the continent. Ali Mazrui is a Kenyan academic and political writer whose book The Africans: A Triple Heritage, which is actually a reader supplement to a PBS telecourse, covers this topic. Ali Mazrui’s argument that “modern” African politics, culture, and societies are a product of an Islamic, European, and indigenous African triple heritage is an accurate portrayal of the continent which African people should derive strength from, focusing on the positive aspects of each, in order to reach the transcontinental stability Africa envisions for herself. Chapter four “African Politics” of Understanding Contemporary Africa written by Donald L. Gordon is a valuable source that speaks to the politics of contemporary Africa and how they have been heavily influence by European culture. One of the most basic pieces of evidence of European influence on African politics is the countries contained within the continent which were drawn up by Portugal,......

The World Is Flat "The Triple Convergence"

...------------------------------------------------- Fall 2013 – Mini project “The World Is Flat” November 18, 2013 Part I “The World Is Flat” The Triple Convergence The ten world flatteners mentioned in chapter two of the book “The World is Flat” together shaped a new global platform and embraced a new workflow system. This new platform permitted the world to join forces and interconnect in ways it had never interconnected before. Thanks to this new platform, geography, time, or distance was no longer a barrier for different sides of the world to collaborate. Due to the creation of “complementary software, the internet, and political factors” (Friedman) countries like China, Russia, India and Latin America, opened their borders and led to the fast pace of globalization mentioned by Friedman. Even though these flatteners were created in the 90’s, as they came together, they had to spread, take root, and connect in order to create this flattening. It didn’t just happen overnight. Friedman mentioned in the opening of chapter two talking about his Southwest experience with them giving people the ability to print their own tickets. And then there were multiple companies developing machines that print, fax, scan, email, and make copies. Needless to say these ten factors (flatteners) that were apparently unconnected came together and create a new global platform. This new global platform (web-enabled platform) is a major part of the lives of the people in the...

Chapter 8 Products, Services, and Brands: Building Customer Value

...Chapter 8 PRODUCTS, SERVICES, AND BRANDS: BUILDING CUSTOMER VALUE MARKETING STARTER: CHAPTER 8 Nike: Building Deep-Down Brand-Customer Relationships Synopsis Marketing is all about creating brands that connect with customers, and few marketers have done that as well as Nike. During the past several decades, Nike has built the Nike swoosh into one of the world’s best-known brand symbols. During the 1980s, Nike revolutionized sports marketing. It powered its way through the early 1990s, aggressively adding products in a dozen new sports, including baseball, golf, skateboarding, wall climbing, bicycling, and hiking. In the late 1990s, however, Nike stumbled and its sales slipped. Nike needed to rekindle the brand’s meaning to consumers. To turn things around, Nike returned to its roots: new-product innovation and a focus on customer relationships. This time, Nike shifted toward cutting-edge digital and social marketing tools to interact with customers to build brand experiences and community. Nike is now building communities of customers who talk not just with the company about the brand, but with each other as well. Thanks to efforts like Nike+, along with a host of other new digital and social media approaches, Nike has built a new kinship and sense of community with and between the brand and its customers. The company’s outstanding success results from much more than just making and selling good sports gear. It’s based on a deep-down connection between the iconic Nike......

Unit 2 Exercise 1 Triple Play Marketing

...In telecommunications, triple play service is a marketing term for the provisioning, over a single broadband connection, of: two bandwidth-intensive services, high-speed Internet access and television, and the latency-sensitive telephone. Triple play focuses on a combined business model rather than solving technical issues or a common standard. However, single standards like G.hn do exist to deliver all these services on a common platform. A so-called quadruple play (or quad play) service integrates mobility as well, often by supporting dual mode mobile plus Wi-Fi phones that shift from GSM to Wi-Fi when they come in range of a home wired for triple-play service. Typical Generic Access Network services of this kind, such as Rogers Home Calling Zone, allow the caller to enter and leave the range of their home Wi-Fi network, and only pay GSM rates for the time they spend outside the range. Calls at home are routed over the IP network and paid at a flat rate per month. No interruption or authorization for the shift is required—soft handoff takes place automatically as many times as the caller enters or leaves the range. By about 2000, cable TV companies were in a technical position to offer triple play over one physical medium to a large number of their customers, as their networks already have sufficient bandwidth to carry hundreds of video channels. Cable's main competition for television in North America came from satellites, which cannot compete for voice and interactive......

Building Services Engineers Perceptions of Climate Change:

...BUILDING SERVICES ENGINEERS PERCEPTIONS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: THE CASE OF HONG KONG by SHING Kwan Ho DISSERTATION Submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Social Sciences (Corporate Environmental Governance), The Kadoorie Institute The University of Hong Kong June, 2009 ABSTRACT This research assessed the local building services engineers’ general perceptions of climate change. The participants’ (1) opinion and knowledge on “global climate change”, “climate change in Hong Kong” and “building services engineering in Hong Kong” and (2) their perceptions towards the perceptions and actions from different groups were measured. In summary, no respondent disagreed with the occurrence of the global climate change but they appeared to be generally not showing strong feelings or opinions towards the climate change issues and their perceptions on different bodies. They may have limited knowledge about the Kyoto Protocol. Developers in Hong Kong were perceived to be the party which did not perceive climate change as a problem and did not take action to mitigate the impacts brought by climate change. Lastly respondents showed different points of view on whether building services engineering has an adverse impact on climate change. Some might be focusing on the actual impact while some might thought the engineers were mitigating the impact on climate change. DECLARATION I declare......

Brand-Building

...BRAND-BUILDING Branding consists of the name, symbol, slogan, design or any blend of these that identify the offerings of your entity and differentiate it from another. Branding is the visual influence of your company. Brand-building is enhancing brand’s equity directly and indirectly through marketing campaign and promotions respectively. Brand equity is the significance your business name has in the industry without accounting the profitability of the company (Vincent, 2012). Equity mean gives an edge, consideration, or autonomy to a company in comparison to another. Positioning is employing promotion to project differentiation in your business and its offering to targeted customers. Building and upholding a strong brand is a primary intention for successful organizations. A general talk with my friend Mark, the word Apple or iPhone is bound to come up whether in terms a discovery of a new exciting app in the App Store or just about the release of another “out of this world” product.

The beams are attached to Columns that are placed in the optimum locations for effective use of the space. Column-free space has become an important design requirement in modern commercial buildings to achieve flexibility in use. Many long-span beam systems have been developed with spans of up to 18 m, which means that internal columns are not required for many building layouts. In addition to their function in supporting imposed loads, floors often act as horizontal diaphragms, ensuring horizontal forces are transferred to the vertical bracing, or cores. Furthermore, the floor components (floor slab, decking and beams) must also provide the required fire resistance as influenced by the building height and use. Services may be integrated with the structural zone, or may be suspended below the floor. Structural floors may have a directly applied floor finish, or a screed, or a raised floor to provide distribution of electrical and communication services. The following floor systems are described:       Composite beams and composite slabs. Integrated floor beams Cellular beams (either using hot rolled steel sections or......

...saw the rise to power of the black majority African National Congress party (ANC) as changing the face of South Africa.
