When we announced our inaugural “Heroes of Conscious Capitalism” Class of 2017 at this past CEO Summit, we knew that each and every one of them were exemplary Conscious Leaders. What also became clear after several interviews with some of this year’s more widely-recognizable honorees were published by Forbes was that there is an undeniable common theme: Each of them were leading their respective organizations toward pursuing a Higher Purpose beyond simply being a profitable company.

Check out these three interviews with Campbell Soup Company’s Denise Morrison, Unilever’s Paul Polman, and PepsiCo’s Indra Nooyi to see how a sense of Purpose deeply permeates each of their companies, providing a solid foundation for business success as measured by a multitude of meaningful metrics.
