世界正在以剧烈的速度变化着。在21世纪，互联网通讯很容易获得，现在，不同的组织必须以透明的方式运作。因此，许多雇主对这一过程不太满意。现在，任何组织都不能只关注与利润相关的方面，而为了留在市场上，它需要专注于可持续性的领域。例如，里根(Reagan)的国家债务增长了三倍，现在的商业机构以这样一种方式工作，他们可以将自己的底线提高三倍。随着时间的推移，衡量可持续性的方法已经发生了变化，不同的商业机构做出决策的方式也发生了变化(Gold et al .，2013)。没有标准化或具体的协议可以衡量可持续性。然而，业务部门通常使用三重底线方法，以便策略、实体和产品可以适合于一个公共框架。这将进一步帮助他们进行更好的比较分析。
The world is undergoing sea change at a drastic pace. In the 21st century when internet communications are easily accessible, it has now become mandatory for the different organisations to run the business in a transparent manner. A number of employers are thus not very comfortable with this process. Now days, any organization cannot only focus on the profit related aspect, however, in order to stay in the market, it needs to concentrate on the arena of sustainability. For instance, the way the national debt has been tripled by Reagan, the business houses of the present times work in such a way that they can triple their bottom line. Measurement of sustainability has been changed over the years and so is the corresponding ways in which the different business houses make decisions (Gold et al., 2013). There is no standardized or specific protocol through which sustainability can be measured. The business houses however normally use triple bottom line approach so that the policies, entities and products can be fit into a common framework. This will further help them with better comparative analysis.
