The External Costs of Production are un quantified and tragic at this point. The casualties are the environment and the people who depend on it to feed their children.
As we will see soon, there are very high costs to the manufacturing sector, not captured in the CSR Report.
Manufacturing is looking out for their bottom line = Profit External Costs to the Environment continue to add up We come along to save lives Pull on the heart strings of any one who will listen MFG Feels bad and gives $ Vicious Cycle If we are not careful, we will accept $ from the culprits of the very issues we are working to eradicate
We may never eradicate anything.

Question: What kinds of things would you typically fund on their CSR The very definition of the CSR is unclear, because I is not legislated. However, organizations do their best to paint a good picture of their operations and how they relate to the society and the environment.
This is an old quotation, but very suiting for an argument against a capitalist societal structure.
Balance exists Stakeholder and Share holders are working together. Consumers and fundraisers can feel better about their choices
Triple Bottom Line Reporting (people, planet, profit) requires businesses to operate from a stakeholder, rather than a shareholder perspective.
The concept of a triple bottom is a holistic way to measure the success and prosperity of a society.
people- social well-being planet- quality of the environment profit- strength of the economy
Managed by the finance committee Triple bottom line thinking holds that a company should combine standard metrics of financial success with those that measure environmental stewardship and social justice.
This produces the true cost of production.
Triple Bottom Line Reporting is just starting to catch on in Canada. Though can be criticized for lacking governmental regulation, it seems to be a step in the right direction A bit too nes to see the inherent results in Toronto Green Enterprise Ontario- Supply Chain Management - November 5th 2010 Speakers from France France and the Netherlands have established laws around 3BL
