Economic well-being and respect for human rights are part of the foundation of a
healthier relationship between people and food.
Today, hundreds of millions of people live in poverty, and significant economic
disparities and gender inequalities persist around the world. As addressed in the
UN Sustainable Development Goals, unemployment, particularly among youth, also remains
a key global economic challenge. At the same time, employees' technical skills do
not currently match employers' needs. And within the agricultural sector, which
according to the Food & Agriculture Organization of the UN, employs one out
of every three workers in the world – over half of whom are women in some
developing countries – we believe that improvements must have livelihoods
and working conditions at their core.
PepsiCo seeks to address these societal issues by:
- Developing and maintaining an exceptional talent base to grow our business and deliver
superior long-term performance
- Creating a workforce that reflects the diversity of our consumers and local communities,
and encouraging our associates to incorporate their individual perspectives into
- Ensuring the safety of our workplaces to sustain superior performance
- Respecting human rights throughout our value chain
