IV. INTEGRATING GOALS AND OBJECTIVES RELATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL PERFORMANCE
you can't take the top line and put it in the bank; you can only put the bottom line in.An added benefit of a CSR reporting focus is the ability, through it, to understand, measure and improve the use of resources.
three Rs(reduce and reuse) can lead to substantial savings for organizations that implement an effective performance measurement system. The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency recently estimated that businesses in Scotland could increase their annual profits by as much as $2,000 per employee through the introduction of aggressive waste reduction, energy efficiency and recycling programs. The three R's - reduce, reuse and recycle - all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy.
To bring more balance into how we measure our success and progress on the integration of the Triple Bottom Line, Dow will launch a Balanced Scorecard.... The scorecard is published for employees, is updated quarterly and is the basic internal measurement tool for our progress on the Triple Bottom Line.
