The Foundation for a Sustainable Society (FSSI) is a social investment organization committed to support the development of sustainable communities through social entrepreneurship. Since 1995, we have developed social enterprises with triple bottom lines in marginalized communities that are owned, managed and operated by the poor, economically sound and environmentally-friendly.
Our organization promotes the triple bottom line (3BL), a term derived from the United Nation’s three pillars of sustainability, also known as the “Three E’s” of sustainability. These are environmental protection, economic development, and social equity which was later coined to three P’s or People, Planets, and Profits. In a general sense, 3BL means the integration of economic, social and environment dimensions in development.
