In this step you'll learn about the new ways of measuring sustainability since the creation of the Three Pillars of Sustainability in 1987. These new metrics look at economic vitality and environmental quality metrics in order to get a more holistic picture of what is going on. These metrics broaden the scope of sustainable business models by focusing on sustainable development rather than limiting themselves to the “triple bottom line”. They are also used to measure the progress of organizations, companies, and even countries in their efforts towards environmental protection and good corporate citizenship. Examples of these metrics include renewable energy generation percentage, gross domestic product, carbon dioxide emissions per capita, and educational attainment.
