Icecream17-I agree as I also invest in dividend funds. I just wanted to say that the other day I heard someone talking about a triple bottom line and I did not know what it was.
I was told that it was a reference often made by environmentally conscious businesses that refers to its people, planet, and profit.
It takes into account all business practices that have changed to be more environmentally friendly. For example, my children’s school in an effort to reduce expenses, be more environmentally focused and profitable they have stopped mailing invoices and have instead sent 100% of the school correspondence by email.
This allows the school to save the money on postage, thus increasing the profit, reduce the amount of paper actually used, which helps the planet, and allows its people more time to devote to other tasks which will make them more productive.
