Nisaba Godrej, also known as Nisa, has been the key architect of the Godrej Consumer Products’ (GCPL’s) strategy and transformation in the last decade. Her approach not only put GCPL on a growth path in India and international markets but also did so while keeping sustainability at its core.

The most distinctive trait of her leadership style is being inclusive and putting people first, be they employees or consumers. Godrej Consumer Products has led with diversity and inclusion and even while serving consumers, it looks to identify unserved consumer needs, across tiers, and has created category-firsts and niches for itself.

In the last year, GCPL had broad-based growth across geographies. India delivered double-digit sales growth. Busiesses in Africa, the USA and West Asia continued their strong growth trajectory. The company is also on track in its journey to reduce inventory and waste cost and is deploying this to drive profitable and sustainable volume growth across our portfolio through category development.

Under Nisa Godrej’s charge, the group enjoys the patronage of 1.15 billion consumers globally, across different businesses. As part of its strategy to remain a ‘good’ company, approximately 23 per cent of the promoter holding in the Group is held in trusts that invest in the environment, health, and education. The company brings its passion and purpose together to create a more inclusive and greener India.
