Triple Bottom Line: In pursuit of social, environmental and financial returns
The Guild’s Triple Bottom Line (3BL) Lab is focused on helping organizations in Atlanta improve their environmental and social impact by connecting them with consultants, subject matter experts and students in the Atlanta community. The 3BL Lab will provide an opportunity to embed students in the local business community and engage students in an experiential learning opportunity, while also providing value to businesses that want to have a positive environmental and/or social impact. Students in the lab will learn consulting skills and best practices in areas like inclusion, stakeholder and community engagement, sustainability and climate change resilience strategies, social impact in supply chains, etc. The goal of the lab is to engage the Atlanta business community around the B Corp model and to grow the number of B Corp-like businesses, while also preparing students for purpose-driven and impactful careers. Stay tuned for more information to be announced Summer 2017.
