@SP, true...i would say that until profits and planet have a clear linkage, it will continue to get ignored more than it should.

Importance of 3 P's

Most of the organizations these days do not realize the importance of three P's. They should know that once there is a strong relationship between the employer and its employees within an enterprise then it will be easy for them to simultaneously achieve their desired goals and earn profit.

Great article and I am glad you posted the link to Smith & Associates recently published a step-wise case study.  I will take a look at this to understand more about the topic as we do not really discuss this much in my present company.

Yes people, planet and profits are the three P's that an organization must stand for. But mostly the profit takes the lead and planet gets the last position.

@Art, you said: "Most business people would agree that successful CSM occurs when the goals of reduced costs and reduced carbon footprints are achieved simultaneously." Thanks for bringing this out: clearly, green initiatives and a focus on sustainability will only take hold when organizations are sure that there is true and achievable business value to be had.
