PepsiCo Values & Philosophy
Our Values & Philosophy are a reflection of the socially and environmentally responsible
company we aspire to be. They are the foundation for every business decision we
We are committed to delivering sustained growth through empowered people acting
responsibly and building trust.
What It Means
Sustained Growth is fundamental to motivating and measuring our
success. Our quest for sustained growth stimulates innovation, places a value on
results, and helps us understand whether today's actions will contribute to our
future. It is about the growth of people and company performance. It prioritizes
both making a difference and getting things done.
Empowered People means we have the freedom to act and think in
ways that we feel will get the job done, while adhering to processes that ensure
proper governance and being mindful of company needs beyond our own.
Responsibility and Trust form the foundation for healthy growth.
We hold ourselves both personally and corporately accountable for everything we
do. We must earn the confidence others place in us as individuals and as a company.
By acting as good stewards of the resources entrusted to us, we strengthen that
trust by walking the talk and following through on our commitment to succeeding
We uphold our commitment with six guiding principles.
We must always strive to:
- Care for our customers, our consumers and the world we live in.
We are driven by the intense, competitive spirit of the marketplace, but we direct
this spirit toward solutions that benefit both our company and our constituents.
Our success depends on a thorough understanding of our customers, consumers and
communities. To foster this spirit of generosity, we go the extra mile to show we
- Sell only products we can be proud of.
The true test of our standards is our own ability to consume and personally endorse
the products we sell. Without reservation. Our confidence helps ensure the quality
of our products, from the moment we purchase ingredients to the moment it reaches
the consumer's hand.
- Speak with truth and candor.
We tell the whole story, not just what's convenient to our individual goals. In
addition to being clear, honest and accurate, we are responsible for ensuring our
communications are understood.
- Balance short term and long term.
In every decision, we weigh both short-term and long-term risks and benefits. Maintaining
this balance helps sustain our growth and ensures our ideas and solutions are relevant
both now and in the future.
- Win with diversity and inclusion.
We embrace people with diverse backgrounds, traits and ways of thinking. Our diversity
brings new perspectives into the workplace and encourages innovation, as well as
the ability to identify new market opportunities.
- Respect others and succeed together.
Our mutual success depends on mutual respect, inside and outside the company. It
requires people who are capable of working together as part of a team or informal
collaboration. While our company is built on individual excellence, we also recognize
the importance and value of teamwork in turning our goals into accomplishments.
