    • Stakeholder theory • The basic premise is that business organisations have responsibility to various groups in society (the internal and external stakeholders) and not just the owners/ shareholders • The responsibility includes a responsibility for the natural environment • Decisions should be taken in the wider interest and not just the narrow shareholder interest
    • What characterizes these stakeholders? • They are vital to the survival and success of the organization. • Their relationship with the organization enables them to be benefited by the organizations’s actions and operations. • This relationship also makes it possible for the organization to harm them or to violate their rights.
    • Stakeholders • Primary stakeholders; – Those most vital to the organisation. – A group without whose continuing participation the company cannot survive as a going concern. e.g. customers, suppliers. • Secondary stakeholders: Those without whose continuing participation the company can still exist. e.g. the community. • Active stakeholders Seek to participate in the organisation’s activities. e.g. managers, employees, pressure groups. • Passive stakeholders Do not normally seek to participate in an organisation’s policy making. e.g. most shareholders, government, local communities.

    • The Triple Bottom Line • The Triple Bottom Line (TBL) is one way to report on sustainable business activity. • TBL defines sustainability in terms of three separate elements: economic, environmental, and social perspectives of operations.
    • Three Elements of the Triple Bottom Line • Economy – reflects activities related to shaping demand for products and services, employee compensation, community contributions, local procurement policies, and other monetary issues related to company activities. • Society - reflects activities in shaping local, national and international public policy, equality, treatment of minorities, employee issues and public concern. That is, organizational citizenship. • Environment – reflects the impact made through processes, products or services that affect the environment. These may include air, water, land, natural resources, flora, fauna and human health.
