PepsiCo’s commitment to sustainable growth, defined by Mrs. Nooyi as Performance with Purpose, is focused on generating healthy financial returns while giving back to communities the company serves.

Recently, she has been driving critical cross-business initiatives to enhance operations and enable PepsiCo to meet the changing needs of consumers and retailers.
