Panelists From Unilever, PepsiCo And Ecolab To Discuss "Integrating Purpose And Profit" At The Executives' Club Of Chicago Program

Mar 04, 2016, 18:29 ET from The Executives' Club of Chicago

CHICAGO, March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On March 10, hear from a panel of executive leaders on the ways businesses can go beyond policies, and embrace practices and products that turn a profit in today's purpose-driven consumer culture.

Consumers increasingly care about where their products come from, how they are made, and the story behind the brands they place their trust in. They are not just talking about it; increasingly they are acting on it. As responsible consumption sales grow, moving from marketing to consumers to mattering to people – in an interdependent yet fragile world – can only be done when values and responsibility are embedded into organizations. Linking business with purpose and engaging stakeholders on this journey has never been more important.
