In this module, you have learned about the benefits, drawbacks, and overall value of using the triple bottom line (TBL) in business. In this assignment, you will take a closer look at how strategies for incorporating this framework are similar and different across the manufacturing industry and the service industry.

- Similarities: Explain the similarities that exist between incorporating the TBL framework into both the service industry and the manufacturing industry, and why.
- Differences: Explain the differences that exist between incorporating the TBL framework into the service industry and the manufacturing industry, and why.
- Example Strategies: Provide an example of a strategy that is appropriate to use across both the service and the manufacturing industries, and provide an example that is specific to either the service or the manufacturing industry when considering people, planet, or profit through the TBL framework.
