*Elkington recently recalled the concept stating that it was never meant to be just an accounting framework but the basis upon which we could ‘work toward a triple helix for value creation, a genetic code for tomorrow’s capitalism, spurring the regeneration of our economies, societies, and biosphere.’ We highly recommend his book Green Swans for more on the evolution of this concept.
