Tipping Point

“The world is at a tipping point because of growing concerns such as poverty, wealth inequality, climate change, drought, famine and species extinction. It is no longer appropriate for businesses to concern themselves solely with maximizing their profits, especially where that would adversely affect their workers, suppliers, local communities and the natural environment. We used to ask: “How much money does the company make?” Today the critical question is: “How has the company made its money – and what impacts has it had on the junction of the economy, society, and the environment in doing so?”
