Lessons from Danone with Isabelle Grosmaitre

“My advice to CEOs embarking in this new era of sustainability would be to demonstrate their contribution as a business to society. It is the only way to win, to thrive and be chosen by consumers, employees, investors, and partners. So act, dare and show that you care.”

In the first episode of the Building Competitive Advantage in a Sustainable World podcast, David Young — BCG Henderson Institute Fellow researching Sustainable Business Model Innovation — interviews Isabelle Grosmaitre — Catalyst at Danone, and Co-Chair Collaboration for Healthier Lives at Consumer Goods Forum.

Together, they discuss how the company defined its “One Planet. One Health” vision, what it took to embed sustainability into the core of the business and innovation. Looking ahead, Isabelle shares her insights and inspiring stories of how companies can innovate leveraging digital and data, and rethink how they engage stakeholders to create real, systemic impact and realize business advantage.
