September 19 – Erb Speaker Series / David Walker, PepsiCo

PepsiCo’s Integrated Business Model: Competitive, Sustainable, Profitable
Erb Speaker Series featuring David Walker, Senior Director of Sustainability, PepsiCo.
Summary: Sustainability objectives are often separate from core business objectives, and as a result are subject to being demoted or postponed when headwinds slow profit and growth. Many large businesses are in the process of revising or even walking away from sustainability promises. This discussion will review the evolution of the current model of sustainability objectives and how the model needs to change to insure that businesses will stay the course when conditions are unfavorable.
