An institutional understanding of triple bottom line evaluations and the use of social and environmental metrics

Kimmet , P & Boyd, T (2004) An institutional understanding of triple bottom line evaluations and the use of social and environmental metrics. In Pacific Rim Real Estate Society conference, January, 2004, Bangkok.


Measuring social and environmental metrics of property is necessary for meaningful triple bottom line (TBL) assessments. This paper demonstrates how relevant indicators derived from environmental rating systems provide for reasonably straightforward collations of performance scores that support adjustments based on a sliding scale. It also highlights the absence of a corresponding consensus of important social metrics representing the third leg of the TBL tripod. Assessing TBL may be unavoidably imprecise, but if valuers and managers continue to ignore TBL concerns, their assessments may soon be less relevant given the emerging institutional milieu informing and reflecting business practices and society expectations.
