The Triple Bottom Line

There are any number of ways to make our community better, and any number of ways to address perceived problems. Within the international development community, a movement to link community, economy, and environment was dubbed the triple bottom line approach back in the 1980’s. Since then the business community, nonprofits (e.g. Grayson Landcare in Grayson County, VA), and governments have adopted the idea. The triple bottom line intentionally seeks strategies that simultaneously address shared community, livelihoods, and environmental restoration usually through some sort of agricultural or forestry endeavor.  

Going forward, the Rapidan Institute will consciously pursue triple bottom line projects wherever possible.  – Jeff Waldon
