Our Global Code of Conduct
Act with Integrity The PepsiCo Way
Our PepsiCo Global Code of Conduct (the "Code") was issued effective October 1, 2012 and is amended annually, as needed, to address changing laws or procedures that impact our business. Our Board of Directors approved an update to the Code, effective August 1, 2020. The update highlights both the Code’s alignment with PepsiCo’s vision to Be the Global Leader in Convenient Foods and Beverages by Winning with Purpose and the leadership behaviors that define PepsiCo’s shared culture, which we call The PepsiCo Way. In addition, the update enhances the overall readability of the Code and explicitly incorporates several global policies, including, among others, those with respect to business gifts and antitrust compliance.
All PepsiCo employees are expected to embrace the principles of the Code. Our Code is the foundation of our commitment to ethical excellence and provides the policies and guidelines that define how we do business the Right Way - The PepsiCo Way:
- Respect in the workplace
- Trust in the marketplace
- Fairness in our business relationships
- Honesty in business conduct
- Purpose in our world
