24: Danone North America’s Deanna Bratter Talks Sustainability At The World’s Largest B Corp

Deanna Bratter heads up sustainability at the world’s largest public benefit corporation: Danone North America. It’s a $6 billion food and beverage company with a massive portfolio of well-known brands. It was so refreshing to get Deanna’s perspective on finding the intersections between purpose and profit when advocating for change within a behemoth organization like Danone. We also spoke about how the B Corp model has helped Danone define things like “living wage” and set benchmarks for progress, and how COVID spurred optimism amongst sustainability practitioners.
