OVERVIEW - TVIA
ACCOUNTABILITY FOR EVERYTHING USING DOUBLE ENTRY ACCOUNTING FOR EVERYTHING
Conventional financial accounting uses money as its unit of account, and concerns itself mainly with money revenues, costs and profits without taking into account the 'externalities' which impact society, natural resources and the environment.
The True Value Impact Accounting (TVIA) initiative builds on the powerful well-established double entry accounting construct to account for everything, giving accountability for ALL of CAPITAL (i.e. HUMAN CAPITAL, NATURAL CAPITAL and CREATED PHSYICAL AND INTANGIBLE CAPITALS) and not just FINANCIAL CAPITAL.
TVIA uses multiple UNITS OF ACCOUNT rather than only money and STANDARD VALUE PROFILES for the PRODUCTS that flow through the system
TVIA has a comprehensive architecture that enables coherent progress and performance reporting for ORGANIZATIONS, PEOPLE (Individuals and families), PLACES, PROCESSES, PRODUCTS and STREAMS.
The purpose of TVIA is to enable better decision making to build better societies and a sustainable world. An important part of the initiative is to facilitate better timely decisions by individual people.

OVERVIEW / THE ARC OF HISTORY
LOTS TO LEARN FROM HISTORY AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE
Even though there has been amazing technological progress, almost everyone seems to be disappointed with the way the world works because in large part, the world does not work very well.
There is more knowledge, there are more ideas, there are more thinkers, there are huge possibilities, but even with all of this there is rather little progress compared to what is needed and what is possible. Something important is missing, and part of this is the lack of a system of performance measurement that embraces everything that matters. With the right metrics, it will be easier to move from 'talk' to 'walk'!

SYSTEMIC DYSFUNCTION OF A COMPLEX SYSTEM
AMAZING KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNOLOGY BUT UNSATISFACTORY PROGRESS AND PERFORMANCE
The global socio-enviro-economic system (SEES)comprising a PEOPLE dimension, a NATURE dimension and a PEOPLE BUILT (CREATED CAPITAL) dimension is massively interconnected.
Exponential growth in knowledge and the capabilities of technology, impressive growth in the wealth of owners, rather slow progress for ordinary working people.

WRONG METRICS
METRICS ARE POWERFUL, BUT BEING USED MAINLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF A VERY FEW
Many of the aggregate measures of performance show improvement over time, but the diaaggregation of these measures show that a small number of people have done very well while most people have not. Management metrics are used to improve financial performance, but the same power is not applied for impact on people and society and the impact on nature and the environment.

OVERVIEW
ORGANIZATIONS / PEOPLE/ PLACES / PROCESSES / PRODUCTS / STREAMS
Reporting about organizations dominates economic discussion, and to a lesser extent national economic performance. This is insufficient as it ignores the critical matter of people and their quality of life, and the environment upon which everything ultimately depends. Accordingly in TVIA there is a complete range of reporting entities so that everything is embraced.
Open L0700-RE-REPORTING-ENTITIES

Open L07-TVIA#RE
ORGANIZATIONS
HOW ONE THING AND EVERYTHING IMPACTS ON EVERYTHING ELSE ... FOR GOOD OR BAD ... TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE
ORGANIZATIONS: Banks / E-Business / Big retail / Franchise chains / Small business

Organizations report more than any other part of the socio-enviro-economic system, but the focus is all about financial performance and the impact for owners / investors. External impacts are ignored in conventional accounting and financial reporting. TVIA builds on the existing conventional accounting making it possible to also report on material externalities that impact people, society and the environment.
Open L0700-RE-ORGANIZATIONS
PEOPLE
THE MAIN PURPOSE OF EVERYTHING IS TO IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE
Human Capital / Babies / Families / Healthy Food

People are the most important part of the socio-enviro-economic system ... everything else supports the quality of life of people. TVIA makes the reporting about people a key part of the reporting framework.
Open L0700-RE-PEOPLE
PLACE
EVERYTHING HAPPENS IN A PLACE, IT IS WHERE PEOPLE LIVE THEIR LIVES AND EVERYTHING IS LOCATED.
Cities / Suburbs / Rural areas / Industrial areas / Mountains / Wetlands

A PLACE is where economic activity consumes resources, degrades the environment and produces products that a needed and wanted by people. A PLACE is where all the sectors come together to enable quality of life and everything else.

GO Slidenav#PLACE
PRODUCTS
STUFF ... GOODS AND SERVICES ... THAT ARE ESSENTIAL FOR QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE
Vegetables / Meat / Personal Products / Electronics / Automobiles

Organizations know a lot about the products that flow into and are produced by the organization. TVIA uses a system of Standard Value Profiles to inform people at large about the value of products and the impact of products on the socio-enviro-economic system.

Mining / Steel Strip Rolling Mills / Petrochemicals / Ocean Shipping

Processes have been optimized by organizations in order for the organization to make the most profit while ignoring associated impact on people, society and the environment. TVIA gives strong incentive for the performance of process to be optimized for the benefit of all of the socio-enviro-economic system.

The socio-enviro-economic system is complex and connected. TVIA enables the analysis of STREAMS / STRANDS / STRINGS because most PRODUCTS flow through many PLACES, through many PROCESSES and ORGANIZATIONS and have a variety of impacts on PEOPLE, on SOCIETY and on NATURE

Sector or industry statistics are not very useful for measurement and management. However they do serve as centers of technical excellence, while also suffering the problem of 'silos'. For example, many of the UN's specialized agencies are organized along sector or industry lines.

MULTIPLE UNITS OF ACCOUNT
MORE POWERFUL THAN A SIMPLISTIC MONETIZING OF IMPACT
Conventional financial accounting uses money as its unit of account, and there are established methods for the use of multiple currencies when this is needed because of the nature of the business.
With TVIA, multiple UNITS OF ACCOUNT are used in a similar way to account for the way in which different activities impact ALL the CAPITALS that make up the SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC SYSTEM. This is more powerful and more flexible than the idea of valuing everything using money and markets

CRITICAL DATA ABOUT THE TRUE COSTS AND VALUE OF EVERY PRODUCT ON THE PLANET
Well managed companies know a lot about every product that is flowing into their organizations and being produced for sale. There is nothing like this level of knowedgle about the products that are flowing through society and having impact on people and the environment.
In companies one technique for documenting knowledge about products is the idea of Standard Costs which is powerful and relatively low cost. In the TVIA data architecture, the equivalent are STANDARD VALUE PROFILES.
