  3. 3. CONTEXT This slideset is a Work-in-Progress and will be updated from time to time. It is part of a series that aims to enable better metrics for the complex socio-enviro-economic system that we all live in. Metrics are powerful, but they must be the right metrics. TRUE VALUE ACCOUNTING
  4. 4. PERSPECTIVE ... An object looks very different depending on the position of the observer. But it is the same object nevertheless. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  5. 5. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING PERSPECTIVE
  6. 6. In the complex global socio-enviro- economic system, multiple PERSPECTIVES are essential ... One perspective … that of the business organization … is not enough, but that is really all there is. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  7. 7. Multiple PERSPECTIVES are essential, that of: ● the ORGANIZATION; ● PEOPLE; ● PROCESS; ● PRODUCT; ● PLACE; ● Natural Capital at the local level; and, ● Natural Capital at the global level. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  8. 8. TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE (TBL) The idea of the Triple Bottom Line … PROFIT, PEOPLE and PLANET has been around since the 1990s*. This is good, but while it broadens the scope of the metrics it remains focused on the performance and perspective of the ORGANIZATION. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING * When it was first described by John Elkington
  9. 9. THE CHALLENGE The challenge is to have a data system that is meaningful from every perspective of the socio-enviro-economic-system. Hence, the need for a data framework that has Multi Dimensions and enables Multi Perspectives MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  10. 10. SOLUTION: True Value Accounting TVA uses concepts from conventional double entry accounting where there are both Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss Accounts. The building block for TVA is similar … State1 → Flow → Process → Flow → State2 … a scheme that can be applied to every economic activity in any setting anywhere. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  11. 11. This TVA building block enables: ● Aggregation to enable summary reporting; and ● Drill down to activities that are relevant at every subsidiary level down to the individual level. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  12. 12. SO … How do we go from an economy where there is a singular focus on PROFIT to something that embraces ALL the dimensions of the global complex socio-enviro-economic system? How do these all come together as a single coherent system? MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  13. 13. SO … What is the PEOPLE perspective? What is the ORGANIZATION perspective? What is the PRODUCT perspective? What is the PROCESS perspective? What is the PLACE perspective? What impacts on NATURAL CAPITAL? How do these all come together as a single coherent system? MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  14. 14. How must the components of Man Built Capital (MBC) be changed to get best possible results? How can people in organizations collectively make better decisions? How can people buying products make better decisions? MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  15. 15. Part of the answer is BETTER METRICS MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
  16. 16. TVA tracks impact on ALL* the components of the system … MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING * Not just the money based financial metrics

  20. 20. Things change over time … STATE* changes MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING * Think the 'State of the Union' message that the President of the United States delivers each year to Congress
  21. 21. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING There must be clarity about STATE and FLOW … or in accounting terms, the BALANCE SHEET and the PROFIT AND LOSS ACCOUNT. PROGRESS is change in STATE …
