The Triple Bottom Line Tool has a number of potential applications:
• As a design tool, you can consider how to optimize your project’s impact.
• As a decision tool, you can winnow, compare, or rank projects.
• As a communication tool, you can describe how an investment aligns with community priorities.
• As an educational tool, the documentation and case illustrations can build understanding about economic development processes and impacts.
Whatever the application, the Triple Bottom Line Tool will help ensure that investment impact is maximized.
